Workshop on Dairy Waste Management

Workshop on Dairy Waste Management


Venue: Hotel Shanker, Lazimpat, Kathmandu

Date: June 30, 2013

Supported by: Korea Green Foundation (KGF)


workshop was divided into two session; Opening session and Technical session and
was attended by fifty four guests from different sectors of life like dairy
stake holders, dairy science experts, professors, environmentalist, environment
consultancies, dairy associations, government officials, students and young

program was chaired by Mr. Prajwal Rajbhandari, Vice President of RIBB; Chief Guest
of the honor was Er. Ganesh Shah, Ex-Minister, Ministry of Science, Technology
and Environment. Key note speaker of the program was Prof. Jagat Bahadur K.C,
Ex-Vice Chancellor, Purbanchal University.

Heramba Rajbhandari, Executive Head, Nepal Dairy Pvt. Ltd. briefed information
about the dairy industry of Nepal and its historic background. He highlighted
the quality of dairy product depends not only on the milk processing but also
on the local processing by farmers, transportation and other processing.

Sanjiv Parajuli, Research Associate, RIBB who was one of two presenters on
technical session presented on management of liquid wastes from dairy industries
with a major focus on cheese whey. Utilization of whey for bioconversion into
ethanol using yeast strains was widely appreciated by the guests.

Niranjan Shrestha, Chief Executive Officer, Environmental Services Nepal, who
was one of two presenters in technical session focused on production of
biofertilizer from dairy industries sludge.  Another key point of his talk was management
systems that can be used to treat wastewater that are produced from dairy
industries in Nepal.

Minute of the workshop:

  • Dairy industries should have inbuilt
    waste treatment plant.

  • Cleaning in Place (CIP) waste, production
    waste and whey should be segregated and collected in three different tanks and
    treated separately.

  • Government policy makers should
    emphasize on providing incentives, tax reduction on equipments purchased for dairy
    waste management.

  • Farmers should be made aware of hazards
    of dairy wastes and should be trained well enough such that they release dairy
    wastes in eco friendly manner.

  • Dairy industries should be encouraged
    and be provide with platforms and tools to convert dairy wastes into beneficial
    product like whey drinks, whey protein and others.

  • For research on waste to energy
    collaboration between university, research institutions and industries should
    take place.
