Staffordshire company offers leaner, greener solution to a landfill problem

Posted: Monday 6th February 2006

Seven years of research and £250,000 have been invested into developing a mobile unit set to transform effluent treatment at landfill sites.

The new system, developed by Staffordshire-based enitial following a Government-supported project, cleans up leachate and discharges it to a sewer or to surface water using a mobile unit.

The equipment is both smaller and more efficient to run than existing systems, resulting in significant environmental savings.

enitial launched an extensive research and development programme, working alongside Loughborough University and the Department for Trade and Industry, and in consultation with the Environment Agency, to produce the compact unit.

The system involves no capital expenditure, as sites can pay as they treat, and uses a flexible design which allows operators to add on modules depending on the size of the site.

enitial’s commercial director Adam Chell says: “Our modular process has been designed after discussions with clients to provide an alternative to more traditional treatment plants.

“The benefits of the enitial package are that high efficiency is achieved from a completely mobile plant which takes up less room than other systems. It also has a lower power requirement than more traditional systems and involves minimal capital expenditure.

“The industry has been crying out for a unit of this kind for years, and we hope to see it adopted across the country in the near future.”

One customer already benefiting from the new system is Grundon Waste Management Ltd at their Knowl Hill landfill site near Maidenhead.

Stephen Roscoe, technical director, said the firm was keen to adopt the new unit, having heard of the many environmental advantages, which include a reduction in traffic using the site.

“We were attracted by the compact and fully enclosed nature of the unit, its relative mobility and efficiency, and certainly see it as a vital investment for landfill sites in the future,” he said. “We have been operating the unit in close proximity to residential housing and have had no problems with odour or noise.”

enitial, which has a £5million turnover, offers a range of services which assist the waste management industry in complying with the latest environmental legislation.

The company also engineers and installs specialist equipment for a wide variety of uses in the environmental sector, including the landfill and effluent treatment industries.
