More fats and greases are captured

A new energy plant in Cheshire which processes waste fats, oils and greases (FOG) for use as biodiesel includes a WPL dissolved air flotation (DAF) wastewater treatment system to reclaim more of the resource.

Argent Energy, which supplies biodiesel for thousands of eco-buses across the UK, has ordered the WPL DAF system for its processing plant at Ellesmere Port.

FOG extracted from the wastewater stream will now be returned to the process and used to create more fuel and less waste. The plant, which is currently under construction, will process waste FOG typically sourced from the food and wastewater industries.

Andrew Haywood, utility and industrial sales manager at WPL, said: “The system was delivered in February and installed in April to become an integrated part of the plant.”

The WPL DAF system, with its main components manufactured in stainless steel, is low-maintenance and fitted with numerous testing and sampling points. Once the site begins processing later this year, tests will take place to ensure the DAF system is removing the highest possible level of solids.
