This report presents the results of the measuring campaign that was carried out at three types of pig manure processing plants, including reverse osmosis (RO), membrane bioreactior with ultrafiltration (MBR-UF) and evaporation, and at veal manure pre-purification plants. The study was conducted to get a better view of the presence of general classic parameters and precaution parameters (antibiotics, (resistant) bacteria and viruses) in the effluents of the processing plants, and of the purification efficiency of technologies that can be considered as best available techniques (BAT) or equivalent. Additionally, the aim was to establish a reference level for precaution parameters for BAT, to present indicative values for precaution parameters to assess alternative purification techniques for equivalence, and to select indicator parameters for assessing the effectiveness of the applied technique. The implementation of this measuring campaign is a next step to harmonization of the discharge policy for effluents from manure processing plants.
