Dairy Effluent Treatment

Membrane Process For The Treatment Of Dairy Effluent

Effluent waters produced by the dairy industry often contain potentially valuable resources that can be lost to drain;  they also contribute to environmental concerns and increased disposal costs.   Dairy effluent by-products contain high levels of organic materials including protein, fats, grease, carbohydrates and minerals which negatively affect COD and BOD values posing a threat to the environment.

Without the need for chemical additives and outdated DAF processes a carefully designed crossflow separation system fitted with a suitable membrane could provide the means to separate, recover and recycle the valuable solids content while reducing organic loading, disposal costs and the environmental burden of the discharge water.  The process is so effective that the recovered water can often be re-used in secondary grade applications, sometimes with the added benefit of heat energy recovery.
