A critical assessment of characteristics of dairy waste waters and their biological treatability

Modern dairies produce large volume of effluents which are very complex in nature and may create serious problems of organic burden to the municipal sewage systems in India. This paper critically assessed source points of waste generation, quantity and characteristics of effluent, its safe limits of disposal and treatment.
