GLRPPR Sector Resource: Detailed Plans for the Reduction in Waste Load from a Dairy and Ice Cream Plant

Title:
Detailed Plans for the Reduction in Waste Load from a Dairy and Ice Cream Plant

Abstract:
The Maola Milk and Ice Cream Company plant was surveyed to identify sources of milk solids losses from production processes. Methods were suggested to reduce or recover and reuse the milk solids lost from the system. Costs and payback period for changes relating to pollution prevention were evaluated. Waste load from a dairy processing plant like Maola is primarily a result of milk products lost to the sewer system. The production manager and supervisors reduced milk loss with a corresponding reduction in waste load. Milk plant losses dropped 100,000 lbs of milk per month reflecting annual savings of $165,000.
