  • Eco-friendly process combining physical–chemical and biological technics for the fermented dairy products waste pretreatment and reuse

    Residual fermented dairy products resulting from process defects or from expired shelf life products are considered as waste. Thus, dairies wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) suffer high input effluents polluting load. In this study, fermented residuals separation from the plant wastewater is proposed. In the aim to meet the municipal WWTP input limits, a pretreatment combining ...

  • Reuse of dairy lagoon wastewater through SDI in forage crops

    Abstract California has become the leading dairy products producing state in the USA. This has resulted in farms commonly milking several thousand cows per day. The care and feeding of the animals has produced large waste streams commonly collected and stored in lagoons. Environmentally safe handling and reuse of the lagooned wastewater is the objective of this study. A system of ...

  • Confidential Client, Dairy Farm, Pennslyvania - Case Study

    In July 2011, AdEdge Water Technologies was selected by CET Engineering Services and the client via a competitive bidding process to design, manufacture, and commission a packaged nitrate removal system for a food processing plant in Pennslyvania. The existing water system is a 0.7 MGD system consisting of a single well pump feeding multiple atmospheric storage tanks coupled with final UV ...

  • On the use of non-negative matrix factorisation to characterise wastewater from dairy processing plants

    A portable field spectrometer was used to record the time-resolved ultraviolet/visible (UV/Vis) spectrum of the effluent stream at two different dairy processing plants (a Drier Plant and Cheese Factory). The spectra exhibited significant variability. As an alternative to the partial least squares regression methods usually used in the online UV/Vis field a non-negative matrix factorisation ...

  • Treatment of farm dairy effluent with hybrid upflow multilayer bioreactor and activated sludge module

    Biological removal of nitrogen and carbon from farm dairy effluent (FDE) was studied with two laboratory-scale systems following nitrification and denitrification processes. Each system consisted of an upflow multilayer bioreactor (UMBR) as a pre-denitrification unit, an aeration tank (AT) as nitrification unit and a secondary clarifier. The optimization of two operational variables, total ...

  • CAF Failure: www/RESOURCE DAF Success!

    This dairy manufactures fluid milk, dairy-based mixes, yogurts, and juices. For several years, the facility was using a CAF system to treat its wastewater prior to discharge. The system performed inconsistently and operational costs approached $14/1000 gallons treated. The city could not tolerate the inconsistent performance and the dairy couldnot afford the costs to operate the system. Many ...
