Food Processing


Waste waters from dairy operations and from processing and manufacture of dairy products can contain significant quantities of high quality fats and proteins.

These contribute to very high biological oxygen demand (BOD) of discharge waters.

It is also a waste of potential resource if these products are disposed of to landfill or waste ponds.

Our calcium bentonite clays have a very high affinity for both fats and proteins.

These clays can be combined with appropriate flocculants to facilitate rapid separation of oils-fats and proteins from the “loaded” water.
