Craigmore Landfill – Colloide Sequential Batch Reactor Install

Colloide Engineering were awarded the contract by RiverRidge Recycling to complete the design and build of a new Leachate Treatment plant with Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) for Craigmore Landfill Site.

The upgrade to the existing plant included Colloide’s new specially designed SBR process that includes a fine bubble aeration system reducing overall running costs, chemical dosing and SCADA systems. The awarding of the project adds to Colloide’s experience of upgrading landfill works, having completed similar works for Fife Council at Lower Melville Wood, and Fermanagh District Council at Drumee landfill sites to name.

Colloide have completed the design and build of a new leachate treatment plant at Craigmore Landfill site for River Ridge Recycling.

Colloide’s scope of works included the integration of a new leachate treatment plant to an existing leachate treatment works to meet the Trade Effluent Consent standards as set out by NI Water. Colloide’s solution was to integrate an SBR process for the new treatment plant.

Colloide’s SBR process is based on biological treatment of wastewater, facilitated with high performance levels that in turn can be applied for municipal, leachate and industrial wastewaters. If you require a bespoke SBR process plant to be designed specifically Colloide can meet your requirements. View more info here on our SBR process.



Our Sequential Batch Reactor Systems

Due to the flexibility and high performance levels, we can use our SBR plants on a wide range of wastewaters. In all cases, the plant is designed specifically for the particular wastewater. Colloide have used SBR technology successfully on applications in the treatment of many fields including municipal wastewater, leachate (landfill effluent) and industrial wastewaters.

The SBR performs particularly well in the treatment of effluent highly loaded in both COD and/or Ammonia, achieving up to 98% removal of bio-degradable COD and total removal of Ammonia. It also has excellent nutrient removal properties. Find out more about our SBR Systems Features and Benefits.
