Three reports entitled "National Meat-Packing Waste Management Research and Development Program," "Industrial Waste Study of the Meat Product Industry," and "Waste Disposal in the Meat Industry," are compiled herein. These reports are a compendium of waste management technology of the meat industry. The goal of this compendium is to serve the meat industry, researchers, and other individuals or agencies concerned with abating environmental pollution. These reports discuss the magnitude and sources of the wastes, available treatment and control technology, additional research information needed, means of developing such information, and the ultimate waste management goal. The Industrial Waste Study of the Meat Product Industry report has been released for distribution to: (1) organizations working directly with the Effluent Guidelines Program to dvelop data for consideration during the preparation of effluent limitations (contractors, industrial trade associations) and (2) U.S. EPA staff. EPA cautions users of this report that it is in draft form and therefore subject to revision. Recipients agree by their acceptance of this compendium not to distribut this report any further. The meat industry has displayed an interest in development of new treatment and control porcesses for environmental protection. In many instances, in-plant changes have been implemented and treatment facilities installed to abat environmental pollution. Pending effluent limitations are resulting in increased interest in research and development programs in meat-packing waste management. Scientistsat the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Laboratory in Ada, Oklahoma, are directing such a program within the Environmental Protection Agency.
