Roadmap to create a knowledge centre for abattoir wastewater treatment

The AMPC 2010/11 Environment programme, as part of their CPRS initiative, proposed the development of a roadmap to create a knowledge centre for abattoir wastewater treatment, with a focus on Anaerobic Lagoons (AL). ALs are major GHG emitters and while the basic science involved in minimizing these emissions, via covering the lagoons is relatively well known, there are currently major technical knowledge gaps in relation to the design, operation and maintenance of Covered Anaerobic Lagoons (CALs) in the industry.
