DEWATS For Naguilian Slaughterhouse

Wastewater discharged from a slaughterhouse has a complex composition and is harmful to the                 environment.

After initial screening of coarse solids, slaughterhouse wastewater is mainly composed of diluted blood, fat, suspended solids and may contain  some manure. When untreated wastewater are discharged to water bodies such as creeks, rivers, and streams, the wastewater    contributes significant levels of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and other nutrients polluting the water receiver.

Current discharged wastewater quality does not meet Philippine effluent standard.
