Tap water and table salt may be safer and cheaper for milk production cleanup
Researchers at Pennsylvania State University may have improved the safety standards of the milk industry while also creating a cost-effective solution.
The current cleaning system used on dairy farms includes harsh, acid-based chemicals. The research team replaced these chemicals with electrolyzed oxidizing water, otherwise known as EO water.
EO water cleaned the pipes and facilities on dairy farms just as effectively as the existing methods.
A switch to the EO system could save dairy farmers money and reduce the chance of hazardous waste spills during transportation.
