Small Meat Processors April 18, 2016 Print Friendly and PDF

Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network webinar

Date: March 30, 2016

Duration: one hour


Managing, treating and removing solid waste and wastewater often comes at a significant cost for small-scale meat processing facilities.  For those new to meat processing, or those looking for new ideas for their plant, this webinar provided a general overview on waste management for both solid waste and wastewater.  We discussed wastewater management, basic systems and pre-treatment options, and regulations.  We also covered solid waste streams (things like manure, bones, trim, etc.) and solutions for dealing with those various waste streams.  

Speakers: Thomas M. Bass of Montana State University Extension, Jean Bonhotal of Cornell Waste Management Institute and Brian H. Kiepper of University of Georgia.
