Gloucestershire based Severn and Wye Smokery have broken ground on a new wastewater treatment plant to treat the domestic wastewater from the successful Smokery and restaurant. Excavation of the new system's innovative cell design has progressed quickly and the plant is expected to be commissioned in early 2015.
The Accel-o-Fac® wastewater treatment plant has been designed by Gurney Environmental, who specialise in the design and supply of sustainable, no sludge, low carbon footprint wastewater treatment systems.
The choice of the Accel-o-Fac® system by Severn and Wye Smokery was driven by a number of factors such as:
- low capex,
- low running costs,
- no sludge handling requirement,
- low carbon footprint and
- minimal operator requirement
...all of which make the Accel-o-Fac® system ideally suited for a small communities.
