Astron was after a solution that provided lower turbidity water for washing of its plastics, reduced odour of its water and overall plant, and a bag dewatering system to allow sludge to be disposed of in a skip rather than liquid waste in an IBC.
Aerofloat custom designed a wastewater treatment solution to treat Astron Plastics wash water by using its patented dissolved air flotation unit, the AeroDAF 100.
A successful trial and final project, that achieved the agreed success criteria of lower turbidity water, reduced odour and a manageable sludge dewatering solution.
Aerofloat was able to quickly identify a simple and cost-effective treatment plant to meet the client’s need.
The plant does not recycle post-consumer plastics but does recycle old and damaged garbage and recycling bins. As such, the wash water quality is not as readily contaminated as that from other plastics recyclers Aerofloat has worked with.
