Fats and Grease Digested 
Meat Processor-Odor Eliminated
Project #921

A California beef slaughterhouse generates 1 million gallons per day of wastewater containing animal fats and grease which empties into several lagoons. An enzyme-based product was used for several years in an attempt to digest solids and reduce odors, but limited success was observed. The influent lagoon was anaerobic and several feet thick with grease and fats. After 6-8 months of biweekly Advanced BioTech Waste & Odor Treatment in conjunction with agitation, the solids had been significantly reduced, odors were eliminated, and aerobic digestion was established.
