Waste Water Treatment

Treatment Plants for Tankered Industrial Concentrates

Hazardous Wastes Plant (South Wales)

RPA carried out the detailed design, prepared the tender specification and provided technical assistance throughout construction, commissioning and operator training for a 250 000 tpa hazardous waste treatment plant. The facility is fully enclosed, odour controlled and fully bunded for leaks, spills, rainwater and firewater control.

The range of wastes received by the plant include aqueous wastes containing inorganic and organic compounds, alkalis, acids, toxic metals, oils and greases, fine chemicals, paints, pigments, animal and food processing wastes.

Further details of this project can be found in the Engineering Services section under “Project Concept to Completion”.


Slurry Waste Treatment (Staffordshire) UK

Dr Paxton was commissioned to determine the feasibility and subsequently, to design and supervise the construction of a treatment plant for processing wastes from the ceramics industry. He had a controlling technical and environmental input to the whole project from concept and feasibility study through to detailed design, construction supervision, commissioning and operator training.

The plant provided a significant challenge as the Client’s investment strategy was constrained by cheap alternative methods of disposal that were less environmentally sound, but which were legally acceptable at the time. Despite this the Client was able to win and retain over 75% of the total waste stream.


Hazardous Waste Plant (Midlands) UK

Dr Paxton undertook a waste survey and economic assessment, site identification and procurement, planning and license negotiations, technical support for grant aid applications, full design, construction project management, commissioning and operational technical support. This project typifies RPA’s involvement for a Client in the waste industry and deals with a broad spectrum of wastes from many industrial sources.
