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.
