Given the environmental requirements on the one hand and the scarcity of water in some parts of the world, on the other hand, treatment of wastewater has become a very important aspect in the poultry industry. Wastewater treatment helps reduce the water footprint of poultry processing.
Wastewater from a poultry processing plant can contain elements such as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, blood, feathers, meat particles, residual acids, metals, and chemicals. Wastewater must be treated to get rid of such pollutants (contaminants). By improving and purifying – removing some or all of the contaminants – Marel Water Treatment makes the water fit for discharge to the sewer or surface water, or to a purifying installation for an upgrade to process water for reuse.
