Effluent treatment plant

We have over 25 years of expertise in reducing final effluent bills by breaking down or removing organic compounds in the effluent stream. We work with manufacturing and processing companies to design, manufacture and install wastewater treatment plants that are used to:

  • Ensure regulatory discharge consents are meet, including COD, suspended solids, fats, oils and greases, pH and more
  • Generate substantial cost reductions on effluent bills – which can see a payback on investment within 2 years
  • Comply with environmental legislation and Environmental Management systems – ISO 14001

We offer two types of treatment plants:

Smart Storm bacterial treatment plants – bioreactors

We carefully select powerful natural biological products that target bacteria and enzymes to break down organic compounds in the waste stream – usually in a large aerated retention tank.

Petroleum, food and drink, agriculture, and hazardous waste industries have high organic loads which are easily digested by our powerful bacteria to reduce COD, suspended solids and target substances such as fats, phenols, sulphates, etc. The 100% natural products we use in our bioreactors are also extremely efficient at reducing unpleasant odours.

Our bioreactor saves you money, improves the environment and reduces your carbon footprint.

Trade effluent treatment plant

DAF treatment Smart Storm DAF (Dissolved Air Floatation)

We use specifically designed DAF systems for the efficient removal of suspended solids, fats oils and greases from process or wastewater streams, producing discharges of extremely high clarity for significant cost savings and trouble-free discharge to sewer or watercourse.

In a DAF system extremely fine air bubbles, also known as ‘white water’, readily attach themselves to the suspended material within the waste stream. This attachment of bubbles to the particle reduces the density of the particle resulting in increased buoyancy. All the solids present within the DAF cell float to the surface forming a solid scum which can then easily be removed by a simple but effective scraper mechanism.

Whilst more expensive than bioreactors, DAF systems can often produce a better water discharge quality.


Thwaites Brewery – Case Study

Founded in 1807, Thwaites produce a wide range of quality cask, concentrating brewing only for its estate of around 270 pubs, a small but growing group of characterful coaching inns and six four-star full-service regional hotels and spas.
