Abstract
Primary attention is focused upon the beet sugar industry in the South Platte River Basin. Beet sugar wastes are the largest source of pollution within the area. Ten sugar factories are dispersed throughout the region and affect water quality over 300 miles of Basin streams. This report comprises five major parts. Section 1 consists of introduction and background to the problem, and description of process operations. Section 2 gives the results of industrial surveys and status evaluation on each of the ten factories in the Basin. Section 3 discusses total factory waste loads before and after treatment. Section 4 describes the bacteriological aspects of sugar beet waste pollution across the country. Section 5 offers a comprehensive review and evaluation of waste abatement and treatment throughout the industry both in the U.S. and abroad. (Author)
