Wastewater from food enterprises has different characteristics in terms of contamination with organic compounds, the content of colloidal, suspended and low-dispersion substances. The composition of effluents depends on technological processes, products and the composition of raw materials. For example, the drains of a meat processing plant contain animal proteins (blood) and pathogenic organisms.
Organic compounds are the main pollutant of food production effluents, therefore COD and BOD are important indicators.
When choosing a wastewater treatment technology for food enterprises, it is worth following the requirements for the quality of purified water. High concentrations of COD and BOD, as well as suspended solids, suggest cleaning in several stages, which will allow it to be brought to the required degree.
Waste water from dairies, meat processing plants, breweries, confectionery factories, bakeries, etc.
