USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation announce the completion of a funded research project at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, in which researchers assessed peracetic acid (PAA) in poultry processing wastewater treatment systems. The research was made possible in part by an endowing Foundation gift from Cargill and is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. A brief summary of the completed project is shown below. A complete report, along with information on other Association research, may be obtained by going to USPOULTRY’s website, www.uspoultry.org. The project summary is as follows.

Project #F074: Fate and Effect of Peracetic Acid Solutions in Poultry Processing Wastewater Treatment Systems

Dr Spyros G. Pavlostathis and colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology recently completed a research project in which they looked at fate and effect of PAA in poultry processing wastewater treatment systems. They assessed the degree/extent of PAA carryover into various poultry processing waste streams and its stability in such streams.
