Abattoir wastes consist of several pollutants such as animal feaces, blood, bone, fat, animal trimmings, paunch content and urine from operations or areas like lairage, stunning or bleeding, carcass processing and by-product processing. These abattoir wastes can be classified as solid, liquid and gaseous forms. Abattoir wastes can have a detrimental effect on the environment, public health, animal health and economy of the country if they are not effectively managed and controlled. Abattoirs often have difficulties in disposing, treating and processing of these wastes in an environmentally acceptable fashion. Due to this reasons there is high risk on environmental pollutions like underground water pollution, air pollution, nuisance, odor, soil pollution and public health risks through transmission of zoonotic diseases to human. Good manufacturing and good hygienic practices, liquid, solid and gaseous waste management practices, are highly necessary to minimize the harmful effect of abattoir wastes. Safe disposal, treatment and processing methods like burial, composting, rendering, incineration, anaerobic digestion and blood processing are also highly important to absorb our economic benefits from abattoir wastes /by-products rather than controlling public health risks and environmental pollution.
