Where waste cannot be discharged into the public sewer systems, sending cess and septic waste to EA regulated sewage treatment facilities ensures that waste is dealt with securely, legally and with a focus on sustainability.
Under the regulations laid out by the Environment Act, businesses are obliged to ensure that waste is disposed of safely, with no danger to people or the environment. It is important to know that your tankered waste is being dealt with by government approved, experienced sewage treatment facilities that are environmentally focussed.
Our sewage treatment facility at Howdon uses advanced anaerobic digestion (AAD), which is where the liquid waste is transformed into energy rich biogas. This method produces 50% more biogas than conventional anaerobic digestion, leaving the Howdon plant energy self-sufficient with excess energy exported into the grid.
The safest and most economical way of treating septic, cess and toilet waste is to import it into a regulated sewage treatment facility such as Howdon or Bran Sands. Here, it will get treated along with the sewage and sludge on site, to not only provide a fertiliser for agricultural land but also to generate biogas which then gets send to the national gas grid for use in domestic properties.
