Dairy processing waste water

Waste waters from dairy operations and from processing and manufacture of dairy products can contain significant quantities of high quality fats and proteins.

  • These contribute to very high biological oxygen demand (BOD) of discharge waters.
  • It is also a waste of potential resource if these products are disposed of to landfill or waste ponds.
  • Our calcium bentonite clays have a very high affinity for both fats and proteins.
  • Bentonite clays can be combined with appropriate flocculants to facilitate rapid separation of fats and proteins from dairy waste and dairy processing waste
  • Bentonite clay is suitable for use in stock feeds, when feed grade flocculants are used the recovered fats and proteins can be reintroduced into stock feeds.
  • This enables effective treatment of water to reduce BOD and also recovers fats and proteins that can be used productively whilst at the same time reducing both direct and indirect costs.
