BioDisc BL, Grease Trap.


The waste produced by this hotel was a cocktail of sewage, bar slops, kitchen fat/grease and cleaning products. The plant itself would experience a highly fluctuating pattern of inflow, (due to opening hours, seasonal peaks and special occasions), both of which called for a careful consideration when selecting the treatment solution.

Other key criteria to be included were a client stipulation on silent operation and an absence of odour. Finally, due to the location, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) required a high level of discharge quality for consent to be granted.
