FOOD AND MEAT PROCESSING PLANTS


 

Careful wastewater management in a meat processing industry is crucial in preserving the environment and human health. With negligence, community problems such as water & air pollution would arise; moreover it could pose a risk to the environment, animals and general health of the public. With regards to the preservation of the environment, the government has been stricter in implementing laws regarding waste water treatment specifically on effluent guidelines or standards.

COMMON ISSUES AND OUR SOLUTION

High nitrogen levels(ammonia, nitrites and nitrates)

Our product has all of the different species of bacteria needed to complete the whole nitrogen cycle. Our bacteria will degrade ammonia, nitrites and denitrify nitrates. Effectively our bacterial process will turn your nitrogen problems into harmless nitrogen gass.

High High Fats, Oils and Grease

We have extremely effective bacteria that can break down fats, oils and grease into their respected elements. High Fats, Oils and Grease consists oxygen, hydrogen and carbon, our bacteria will break down these High Fats, Oils and Grease to water and carbon dioxide with no residuals to clog up your system.

High phosphates

Our bacteria will bind your phosphorous in their cells effectively removing them from your outflow water.

High TSS

Our photosynthetic bacteria will effectively bind your suspended solids and settle them out of your water body our other bacteria can then effectively digest these solids if they are organic.

High COD/BOD

The above issues combine to give you a high COD/BOD reading and by treating these issues we effectively lower our COD/BOD to make sure that your outflow water can be under specifications needed for General standards.


 

CASE 1: Food Processing Plant in Pampanga

Specific Problems and Issues

The food processing plant is located in Pampanga. This meat processing industry is known for their hotdog and other processed meat products locally and internationally with one of the highest ISO Accreditation and Certification in terms of Food Processing Industry. The wastewater generation is at around 350 cubic meters per day processed into their SBR (Sequencing Batch Reactor) wastewater treatment facility. Treatment units for the plant composed of DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation), Equalization Tank and SBR Tank unit.

The major problems encountered for the facility were high concentrations of BOD, fats, oil and grease plus nutrient concentrations as additional monitoring parameters. Another major concern were no sludge volume in the SBR tank plus oil and grease accumulation. Odor as nuisance has also been a problem in the vicinity due to fats oil and grease (FOGs) problem on their wastewater treatment facility.

Our Solution

These issues could be addressed by bioremediation. It is a process of treatment and breaking down of environmental pollutants by microbial metabolism. In the recent years, biotechnological approaches that could carry out remediation has gained a great deal of attention since it’s a natural process that is cost effective and would require less energy and manual supervision compared to other technologies. 

The Microbe-Lift® series is an advanced bioremediation technology that contains a complete consortium of Bacterial cultures that degrades almost all kinds of organic waste in your wastewater which helps improve its quality and can enhance composting efficiency of biodegradable wastes. Microbe-Lift contains a wide array of bacteria that can immediately multiply upon contact with polluted water. Moreover, these bacteria produce enzymes responsible for organic degradation.

MICROBE-LIFT/IND (Hi-Count) is used to address the failed effluent parameters of the Dressing Plant. MICROBE-LIFT/IND a highly active liquid culture consortium designed specifically for use in practically all environmental applications. Microbe Lift IND select cultures promotes increased biological degradation capabilities in all types of designs of biological wastewater systems, lagoons and polluted environments. Microbe Lift IND consortium is very effective in degrading hard to degrade complex compounds such as fatty acids, various chemical compounds, hydrocarbons and fibrous matters that indigenous bacteria often unable to degrade them, hence result in system performance deficiency.

Visual Comparison and Technical Data

Effluent Results of Wastewater Analysis tested by DENR Accredited Laboratory:

Scum liquefaction in just 1-2 weeks using Microbe-Lift IND. No more FOGs in the SBR Unit /Aeration Tank

Random Sludge Monitoring in the SBR Tank (Improving as the treatment goes by)

Summary and Conclusion

                The main objective of the treatment was to address the scum accumulation due to fats oil and grease intrusion into the SBR Tank. Liquefaction of the accumulated FOGs will help a lot to the biological treatment tank thereby improving sludge volume and quality into the aeration tank. Biological Nutrient Removal achieved by 40-80% as to Ammonia, Nitrate and Phosphate in just first month stage of treatment. 


 

CASE 2: A Dressing Plant in Tarlac
 

Specific Problems and Issues

The dressing plant is located in San Nicolas, Tarlac City. This is one of the biggest toll processing in the area with a capacity of 80,000 birds per day. The wastewater generation is at around 1,300 to 2,000 cubic meters per day being served with an SBR Type (Sequencing Batch Reactor) Wastewater Treatment Facility. There are three (3) units of SBR operating 24 hours, with three (3) cycles each day.

The problems encountered for the facility were high concentrations of BOD, TSS, Fats, oil and grease plus nutrient concentrations as to Ammonia, Nitrate and Phosphates. Another major concern was the sludge accumulation to each SBR Tank thereby poor treatment manifestations and poor effluent quality.

Summary and Conclusion

Based from the data on the results of the analyses, using the Microbe-Lift Technology greatly helped in reviving and resolving the problems encountered by the dressing plant. It is very evident on the significant reductions of the effluent parameters thereby resulting to better effluent quality as to color, odor and contaminant degradation. The 50% to 90% reduction from the baseline results, speaks up the product of an innovative technology; that is Microbe-Lift Technology, a natural environmental solution established and now 43 years in the industry.
