Water Reuse and Conservation Techniques for Poultry Processing

Food and Beverages | Wednesday, December 21, 2022

Water reuse is essential for a sustainable future. Large amounts of water are required for cleaning, and removing soluble water recycling becomes a critical concern for these plants.

FREMONT, CA: Wastewater treatment has emerged as a critical issue in the poultry industry due to environmental concerns and water scarcity in some parts of the world. Wastewater treatment contributes to a reduction in the water footprint of poultry production.

Here are some ways to avoid water scarcity in poultry processing.

Fit for reuse and discharge: Meat and poultry facilities have realized the need for a water recycling process and recycled process water to balance rising water prices, reduce wastewater treatment expenses, cut cost municipal wastewater discharge fees, and promote corporate sustainability objectives.

Technology and chemistry have made to integrate water reuse into any meat and poultry processing business feasibly and cost-effectively.

Laws and regulations: Companies that process poultry must adhere to discharge laws in every country, which can change. Governmental mandates are constantly being updated with tighter restrictions on using chemicals, energy, and process waste recycling.

Wastewater experience: New technologies in the poultry and meat processing sector not only enhance the quantity of water that can be reused but also lower the amounts of BOD, TSS, and TKN in plant water streams.

Discharge of surface water: Local laws in most nations cover discharge into surface waters. The natural purification process follows the initial decontamination phases, which "mechanically" rid the wastewater of large particles, greases, and emulsions. In almost all circumstances, a biological, anaerobic, and aerobic therapeutic step is necessary.

Discharge to sewers: Businesses must ensure that any wastewater they produce can be safely disposed of in a sewage system. Fats and coarse particles can clog sewers, causing damage to homes and other businesses that discharge into the same sewer.

Inefficiencies in upstream liquid/solids separation: Separation is the process of directing particulates in a flowing stream to one point while directing fluids to another. Solids are often collected in a fixed spot, whereas fluids move continually. The solids should be segregated; they must be inorganic, insoluble, distinct particles with a greater density than the continuous fluids.

While maintaining high uptime operability, a liquid/solid separation system must be constructed to be heavy-duty, robust, user-friendly, tool- and mechanic-friendly, run with low maintenance, and have an effective clean-in-place (CIP) system.

Sanitary zero-maintenance: This method will reduce labor costs. Many manufacturing providers provide industrial cooking and cooling equipment and liquid-solid separation for the food and beverage industries, creating sanitary zero maintenance.
