Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Unreviewed Options, Use with CautionUnreviewed Rendering- Chicken Offal Options

Options below have not been reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. They are commonly recommended and implemented for facilities.

Cooker Domes at the Rendering Plant
This option would involve the installation of five domes which would cover each meat cooker. The domes allow the cooking process to be more efficient, and they also prevent a "burping" effect when a given cooker is brought up to temperature. When a cooker "burps", high concentrations of BOD can impact the Waste Water Plant and thereby constitute a slug load. This situation increases the probability of a noncompliant event.
