Green Cleaning Technology

Organic wastes and wastewater from meat producing operations are usually treated in a “pre-treatment” process before being discharged into a sewer, river or just left to soak into the water table.  Pre-treatment is done to reduce the COD and or BOD of the wastewater.  COD stands for “Chemical Oxygen Demand” and BOD stands for “Biological Oxygen Demand”, and is a measurement of the amount of organic and or inorganic material in the waste water.

The pre treatment facility is usually quite simple in design.  Its main purpose is to hold the wastewater for a sufficient period of time while the bacteria are allowed to degrade the waste. The bacteria digest suspended and dissolved solids,actually functioning like a simple miniature wastewater treatment plant.  It can be in a holding tank or retention pond, or a series of tanks and or ponds. Unless the ponds or tanks are properly treated they can give off foul odours, have severe accumulation of solids on the bottom, and fail to lower the COD and or BOD as much as desired.

To allow this type of pre-treatment process to
operate properly, you require:

The correct consortium and ratio of bacteria and bio-enzymes to be introduced into the system.
Agitation – to optimise the breaking down of any solids.
Aeration – to optimise bacteria activity.

Food processing waste can be more difficult to treat than many other types of waste.  This is because the meat processing waste is fresh organic material.  It is not already partially degraded, like many other types of waste.  It is often acidic, and contains few naturally occurring bacteria to aid in digestion.  It also contains a large amount of cellulose material, which requires extra time and effort for the bacteria to digest.  Finally, the typical pre-treatment facility is very simple and unsophisticated in design, unlike most municipal sewer treatment plants.

The special consortium of bacteria and enzymes in ABPACK work much faster and more efficiently than ordinary bacteria, however, they still require time to digest waste. The longer the retention time, the more organic matter will be digested, and the COD and BOD of the effluent water will be lowered.
