Works/Past Studies

There is no
direct study on this Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) yet. There is some
case study on the Slaughterhouses in Indias different Pradeshes, Switzerland
and most amazingly in DNCC.

From these Studies it is clear that almost all over the world there is some
practices done on managing the slaughterhouse solid wastages. Developed
countries haved adopted the environment friendly and the exact techniques in
this circumstances.There is also a lack in the proper management in India but
the lackage and poor performaces of Dhaka is below the average.DNCC has two
governmental settled Slaughterhouse and there is lack of proper utilization.
Our neighbouring country India is not maintaining healthy treatment too
although the developed Prodeshes have more well managed system than the
follower. However they are saving 30.8 crore Rs everyday from Biogas plants

3.3 Current Management Methods

Animals are slaughtered in traditional ways on the
open ground with/without further processing or dressing on the floor/rails are
the common practices in a majority of the slaughterhouses.

It may be due to

•      The existing condition in
the majority of the traditionally slaughterhouses is far from satisfactory,

•      Many
slaughterhouses on DSCC are now located in densely populated urban areas,

•      Road
access and transportation is often difficult,

•      Old and in poor condition
of infrastructure,

•      Extremely poor process control
of Carcass,

•      Lack of proper waste

•      No provision of lairage

•      Municipal
Slaughterhouses lack basic facilities including:

– Clean protective
clothing for workers

– Adequate
lighting, Provision of hot water, cleaning and disinfection                            Equipment
and consumables

– Facilities to
keep Grease material off the floor (particularly offal)
