Gasholder Decommissioning - Waste Sludge Treatment
Throughout 2016 Solids Control Services (SCS) deployed a mobile (trailer mounted) liquid-solid separation system across the UK. The system was used as part of a national strategy to treat waste being removed from eight redundant gasholders at four locations. Approximately 4,500m3 of sludge and effluent was treated, reducing waste requiring offsite disposal by 85%. The high capacity treatment system is designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (Zone 1, ExII 2G) and can be fully installed and commissioned within one working shift.
