Livestock operators generate massive amounts of liquid animal waste on land, which runs off into waterways, killing fish, spreading disease, and contaminating drinking water. The plaintiff groups cite EPA estimates that pathogens, such as E. coli, are responsible for 35 percent of the nation's impaired river and stream miles, and factory farms are one of the most common pathogen sources.
As detailed in the White Paper, global studies have been conducted to determine the effect of probiotics technology for wastewater treatment. Studies indicated reductions in Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and total coliforms in wastewater treated with probiotics.
A new Case Study provides clear evidence of odor reduction associated with livestock operations. As the attached graph demonstrated, average foul odor at a dairy farm (as measured by a scentometer) was reduced from 13 D/T to 5/5 DT after probiotic applications.
