Aerofloat’s design allowed for increases in flow rates and ammonia concentration during peak flows. The plant achieved results beyond the initial scope, managing peak loads of 2000mg/L of ammonia and still achieved strict Sydney water ammonia and nitrogen discharge limits.
Aerofloat’s engineers continued to support the relationship well beyond the capital project by maintaining the plant and offering ongoing chemical supply.

Shellharbour City Council needed to upgrade its Dunmore Recycling and Waste Disposal Depot to combat rising disposal costs.
Landfill on the site generated wastewater called leachate, which had previously been managed via 200,000L storage tanks and trucking the wastewater offsite for treatment and disposal via a third-party provider. This was a high cost exercise as Council were trucking out tens of thousands of litres per day.
A commissioned report into the disposal options for the site showed that onsite pre-treatment and connection to sewer would be a more economical and sustainable option for Council.
Aerofloat’s industrial wastewater experience, and its critical thinking led to it being awarded the contract, and successfully delivered the project.
