Synlait Pokeno Wastewater Treatment

Compliant wastewater for Synlait

Babbage Consultants, on behalf of Synlait Dairy, consulted with and contracted Apex Environmental to upgrade the recently constructed wastewater treatment plant to include a biological process. This involved converting two of the existing storage tanks into sequencing batch reactors (SBR). This was to help with achieving trade waste discharge consent levels by reducing levels of BOD, suspended solids, nitrogen and phosphorus in the discharge. 

Apex Environmental has significant experience in brownfield upgrades of existing treatment plants, to achieve ever-tightening consent regulations. In this instance, Apex Environmental took an innovative approach to ensure upgrades were cost-effective and took full advantage of existing infrastructure.
