LBV Improvement Programme

Posted on 4th July, 2018

The WasteCare Group has continued the investment programme at its Lower Bank View site in Liverpool, with two projects totalling a £40k investment, which will be implemented during this month.

A major upgrade of Filter press feed pumping system, this involves the installation of a new pump and pipework. The replacement of the existing pump which has been in service for over 10 years with a new Ram pump. The new system is capable of providing a constant feed to the two existing filter-presses installed on site and should deliver a 25% increase in productivity when fully commissioned.

Oil / Water separation equipment which will enable the separation of oils from aqueous materials. This system should allow a broader range of materials containing low levels oils to be received at the site. Once the separation has taken place, the waters will be processed on site through the existing equipment and the oils will be available to be recycled into other processes including RFO.
