Pressure on industrial sites to meet strict trade effluent standards is mounting, as increasing environmental scrutiny of water companies filters down to their commercial customers.

WPL’s full-scale operational trials provide a fast and effective solution, offering immediate enhancement to onsite effluent treatment. This means full compliance is achieved as soon as possible, with no capital risk, putting your mind at ease while a permanent option is found.

Inhouse expertise ensures compliance

We work collaboratively with our customers to understand the challenge and develop a custom, site-specific solution. By working through the process together, we can help our clients build and enhance their inhouse knowledge of industrial effluent treatment (etp) and compliance, to ensure long-term environmental protection.

Trusted experts and utility partners

With an in-depth knowledge of environmental compliance, our technical experts are trusted and respected across the water industry. We have designed and installed wastewater treatment solutions for a diverse range of global sites.

Contents of industrial trade effluent is highly variable but may include substances that can be harmful to the environment if not treated correctly. In giving consent for businesses to discharge industrial trade effluent, water companies may require it to be treated to a specified standard before it enters the foul sewer and becomes the responsibility of the utility to manage. Breaching this agreement and not fulfilling environmental obligations can result in fines or prosecution and there are major reputational risks.

Our successful partnerships with utility clients mean we understand the high environmental standards they strive to achieve.

No capital risk

The long-term solution of installing new or upgrading existing wastewater treatment equipment can mean a significant capital investment – funds which may not be readily available. Opting for a trial will offer fast and robust environmental protection, while giving you time to plan for long term investment.

Sampling and lab testing

Onsite sampling and laboratory testing of effluent ensures the correct technology and treatment processes are in place to maintain compliance based on parameters including levels of fat, oil and grease, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and suspended solids.

Site-specific design for custom solutions

While designed and set up quickly, our full-scale trials are custom designed, based on specific site requirements. We have a large and comprehensive range of equipment, which can be easily transported, set up and commissioned quickly.

Our effluent water treatment solutions are modular and flexible – we can add to, alter or remove existing equipment to find the best solution for your site. Employee training can be easily arranged, if required.

Once the process is up and running, data can be analysed to help inform a permanent scheme, with the option of purchasing trial equipment.  Whatever the challenge, we will work with you to find the right solution.
