GAroca   The processing of meat by-products for the production of protein meals entails the generation of gaseous emissions causing annoying odours that cause a severe environmental impact in the surrounding populations.

   This work presents the characterization of the main components of the process emissions, the dimensioning of the treatment system and the results of the operation of a rendering plant of turkeys, where fractions, such as viscera, blood, feathers, as well as seizures and discards, are processed to produce flour and oil for animal feed. This plant has a processing capacity of 8 million turkeys per year and a projection of 12 million.

Abstract

   The processing of meat by-products for the production of protein meals entails the generation of gaseous emissions causing annoying odours that cause a severe environmental impact in the surrounding populations.

   Sopraval SA is a producer and marketer of turkeys for national consumption and export, located in Nogales, Region of Valparaíso, Chile, with a processing capacity of 8 million turkeys per year and a projection of 12 million. In the rendering plant, the non-edible turkey fractions, such as viscera, blood, feathers, as well as seizures and discards, are processed to produce flour and oil for animal feed.

   This work presents the characterization of the main components of the process emissions, the dimensioning of the treatment system and the results of its operation.

   The system consists of a stage of physical treatment, using condensers and filters, a chemical stage of two chemical scrubbers and a biological stage; a biofilter. The system has operated for a year and has reached 100% removal of the main responsible for the odour nuisance caused by the operation of the rendering plant.

Estimados me pareció sumamente interesante todo lo tratado, ademas quisiera comentarles que actualmente me encuentro realizando un estudio de contaminación odorífera en la ciudad de iquique y quisiera consultar ¿Cual fue el método de muestreo del H2S y parámetros de comparación?
quedo atento, muchas gracias.
