Our MD, John Fraser, signs up for charity sleepout…AGAIN

On Monday 11th November our Managing Director John Fraser will, once again, have his flask held close to him in his sleeping bag, resting his head on the cold floor as he prepares for a night sleeping rough. Why? He will be taking part in the CEO Sleepout event at Preston Park Museum in Stockton.

The charity, which raises money to fight homelessness and poverty across the UK, was set up in 2013 by philanthropist Andy Preston after two successful sleepout events were held at Middlesbrough FC and Newcastle United. CEO Sleepout events are now hosted in a number of cities across the UK each year, with executives from Leeds, Manchester, London and Northumberland to take part before the end of 2019.

What is the wastewater treatment process?

So, the question you all seem to be asking, what is the wastewater treatment process?

Wastewater treatment is one of our key offerings where we offer a solutions-based approach to treating effluent prior to discharge; from process design, plant and chemical programmes, to sludge management and water reuse.

If trade effluent is to be introduced directly into surface waters (rivers, streams, sea), a consent to discharge is generally required. Effluent discharged directly to sewers must also be kept within set parameters. This is why wastewater treatment is so important, it reduces the risk of financial penalties, plant closure or water pollution.

Cutting the cost of tower pack-fill

Cooling tower internal packing needs to be inspected and cleaned regularly. Traditionally, the packing has to be removed, but this is costly. Here, we discuss how Biochemica Water has developed an alternative strategy to clean packs without removing them.

Due to Health and Safety regulations, cooling tower internal packing needs to be inspected on a regular basis and, depending on the level of fouling, cleaned to prevent scale and the potential growth of legionella bacteria. Traditionally cooling tower packing has been removed to be cleaned but this process is becoming increasingly costly.
