The dairy industry includes the transformation of raw milk into pasteurised and sour milk, yoghurt, hard, soft and cottage cheese, cream and butter products, ice cream, milk and whey powders, lactose, condensed milk, as well as various types of desserts.
In this industry, the waste water differs significantly due to the different compositions, attributed to the product manufactured and the technologically used to do so. Dairy effluents are distinguished by their high organic content, low nutrient value, relatively increased temperatures, wide pH range and highly disinfected content. This requires special purification and treatment steps in order to reduce or eliminate the environmental impact of wastewater discharges.
Milk processing effluents have an increased temperature and large variations in pH, TSS, biological oxygen demand (BOD), COD, total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP) and fat, oil and grease (FOG)
Water plays a key role in milk processing. It is used in every step of the technological lines, including cleaning and washing, disinfection, heating and cooling. Water requirements are huge. In dairy plants, the great fluctuations in wastewater quality and quantity are very problematic because each milk product needs a separate technological line.
Three major categories can be outlined according to their origin and composition
Over the past 20 years, the Clearfox Team has successfully designed many plants all over Europe. Examples vary from a small Swiss mountain cheese producer to a large milk combine dairy in Eastern Europe.
