GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention Pays in Food Processing; Liquid Assets for Your Dairy Plant

Title:
Pollution Prevention Pays in Food Processing; Liquid Assets for Your Dairy Plant

Abstract:
Water has many uses in dairy processing - cooling, washing, heating, and cleanup. Many plants use more than four gallons of water to process each gallon of milk. Water and sewer service costs have been rising rapidly, and these increases can cut into profits. Using water more efficiently, however, can help to counter these increases. Realizing the potential for savings, some plant managers have cut their plant's water use to as little as one gallon of water per gallon of milk processed.
