The report presents an overview of definitions, sources, legal requirements, and technical solutions for air emission control in dairy processing and control of dust emissions from energy supply plants in dairy production.
This paper highlights the fact that, while the dairy industry contributes to dust emissions, it is not a significant source in global terms.
Furthermore, the report demonstrates the capacity of technological solutions such as cyclones, wet filters and tubular filters to reduce these emissions from powder drying plants.
The report also shows that the choice of fuel/energy source can have a significant influence on dust/particulate emission from energy supply plants and illustrates the different influences resulting from such choices.
Keywords: Environment, emissions, dust, dairy.
