The objectives if the research were threefold: 1. To determine the effect of increased kill and loading on an anaerobic pond system treating meat packing wastes. 2. To determine the effect of recirculation in an anaerobic pond system treating meat packing wastes. 3. To determine the insulating effect of a meat waste grease-scum. The extent of the research was limited to the anaerobic system.
Samples and records were taken at the MID Packing Company from November 1965 through March 1966. During the first period of sampling, data were collected which made possible an evaluation of the effect of higher kill. Grab samples were collected and analyzed for biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) to suspended solids, volatile acids, and pH. Water meter, temperature, and kill records were obtained at the packing plant. During the second period of sampling similar data were taken which made possible the evaluation of the effect of recirculation. The insulating effect of the grease-scum was determined by temperature records taken throughout the period from November to March.
