Annual Savings Realised - £476,617


WASTE Haulier Company

Waste Water Treament Challenge:

  • Waste water from washdown of dustbin wagons
  • Waste water volume 8m³/day
  • Waste water contained:
    • Oils
    • Heavy Metals
    • High C.O.D. and Suspended Solids
  • Customer had issues with local water authority due to failing consent on their C.O.D and heavy metals discharge

Existing Waste Water Treatment System:

Company used a mechanical filtration/separation process
Bacteria growth cause the mechanical filtration/separation system to fail
Customer was receiving monthly fines and surcharges for failure to meet discharge levels. The fines were charged at £3,000 per item.

Waste Water Treatment / Effluent Treatment System supplied by CTECH:

Daily waste water volume reduced to 3m³ due to change to wagon cleaning method
Waste water treatment system CBS 750 installed
Single step treatment with PolyClay
Heavy Metals
, oil, suspended solids, and C.O.D. now all meet waste water discharge consent limit to sewer

Cost Savings:

No further fines from the sewer company


Film Manufacturer

Waste Water Treament Challenge: Waste water from packaging film manufacture  

  • Waste water could not be treated with conventional flocculation methods

 

Waste Water Treatment / Effluent Treatment System supplied by CTECH:

Waste Water Treatment System CPS 10000 which included two Filter Press Units

Cost Savings:

Total savings of £325,000 per year


Paint Manufacturer

Waste Water Treatment / Effluent Treatment System supplied by CTECH:

  • Waste water from paint manufacture
  • Waste water volume 1,200m³/month

Existing Treatment Systems:

Three stage liquid polymer process that was not consistent with effective waste water treatment
Existing waste water treatment system had capacity issues
Unable to identify sludge de-watering system
Sludge hauled away and costs were increasing
Sludge clogged up in the sludge tank and settled in the haulier trucks adding to disposal costs
Sludge disposal cost increased
Sludge had to be cleaned out of flat bottom waste water treatment tank
Customer had been unable to find a filter press system that sludge did not stick to

Waste Water Treatment / Effluent Treatment System supplied by CTECH:
 

Waste Water Treatment System CPS 15000 which included two Filter Press Assemblies
PolyClay eliminated the tackiness of the sludge therefore providing excellent processing through the Filter Press units
Filter Press units produce 55% solids in sludge

Cost Savings:

PolyClay reduced C.O.D from an average of 15,000mg/l to 1,800mg/l
PolyClay reduced Total Solids from an average of 23,500mg/l to 1,800 mg/l
Labour costs reduced by 60%
Waste water treatment costs reduced by 43%
As PolyClay treatment produces a sludge which can be dewatered by a filter press the sludge disposal costs reduced by 74%
