Poultry Treatment Process

Poultry processing plants, as in many other food processing activities typically are high water users. For broilers, 5 to 10 gallons of water are used to process one 5 pound, average-sized chicken. When processing turkey the volume of water is even higher with average weight of slaughtered turkeys exceeding 4 times that of a chicken. It is not unusual for a typical poultry processor to generate 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 gallons of wastewater daily. Poultry Wastewater Treatment Process
This water will be laden with fats, proteins and carbohydrates from meat, fat, blood, skin and feathers. The water is also polluted with a fair amount of grit and other inorganic matter. Waste load can be determined by a number of different measurements, including BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), TSS (total suspended solids concentration), COD (the chemical oxygen demand), and FOG (fats, oil and grease), but poultry plant wastewater is most often tested for BOD ­which is a measure of the amount of oxygen needed to degrade the organic matter (feathers, fat and blood) in the wastewater.

Poultry processing plants are required to remove the majority of all soluble and particulate organic material in their generated wastewater prior to any discharge from the plant. This process needs to take place in order for the plant to be in compliance with local, state and federal environmental regulations.

Keneco Environmental Systems custom configures a full treatment system that can screen and treat the wastewater to discharge levels that meet or often exceed local municipal requirements.
