A typical broiler processing plant was used to evaluate changes in equipment and processing techniques to reduce water use and waste load. Production at the plant was through two processing lines and totaled approximately 70,000 broilers per day. Benchmark results indicated a water use of 12.28 gallons per bird which was reduced by 32% to 7.81 gallons per bird received. Benchmark results indicated a daily waste load of 3970 lbs BOD5 received which was reduced by 66% to 1355 lbs BOD5. Changes made are detailed and economic analysis showed all to be profitable for the plant with an average annual net savings of $4.08 per 1000 broilers processed. Annual operating costs were $31,023 with annual net savings of $72,193. A water and waste management program is detailed.
