Concept and Detailed Design of Wastewater Treatment Plants
Over the past 17 years, EEI has been engaged by many industries of various sizes locally and internationally to design, optimise, retrofit, construct and upgrade wastewater treatment systems.
From large volume systems, to low capacity systems, EEI is committed in ensuring that our recommended solutions, satisfies all our clients needs.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT TROUBLESHOOTING
Many clients have installed wastewater treatment plants from companies which do not necessarily have enough technical personnel. Each wastewater treatment project is different. We have helped many clients - ranging from small industries and developers to multi billion dollar mining companies - to troubleshoot their wastewater treatment plants that were designed and installed previously without due consideration to the complexities. If a wastewater treatment plant is not properly designed considering all the parameters that can impact, for example, the strength, the short term peak flows, the composition (such as sulphur compounds), seasonal variabilities of flow and strength, the plants would end up in a disaster. Often clients go to the cheaper option initially, but later find that they ended up having a treatment plant that costs more to operate, but does not provide the necessary treatment, and often causes issues such as odour generation.
Contract Research and Testing Services
EEI is well positioned to undertake contract research projects. We have carried out several contract research projects for the United Nations agency UNFCCC, Alcoa Australia, Meat & Livestock Australia, Water Corporation and other agencies.
With our collaboration with University of Western Australia, Murdoch University and University of Missouri, USA, we have additional resources and expertise available that can provide unparalleled research and engineering capabilities to provide better solutions that address both fundamental and practical aspects.
EEI has a fully equipped and comprehensive internal laboratory that is able to provide water and wastewater sampling and testing services. We operate some of the latest equipment and ensure that precision and accuracy are maintained over its lifespan. In our purpose built laboratory, we are able to provide sampling, testing and reporting services to any of our clients. All wastewater samples which are tested, are reviewed by specialist engineers and scientists to ensure that any potential issues can be solved before it become critical.
Procurement of equipment & Wastewater Treatment Chemicals
EEI has the ability to provide all water treatment chemicals including coagulants, flocculants, phosphorus removal chemicals, pH correction chemicals, disinfection chemicals, chlorine tables and liquid chlorine.
Our sales staff will be pleased to help you with your requirements. We can also undertake with the help of your laboratory technical personnel, conduct a feasibility and comprehensive study on requirements and costing of chemicals including dosing studies.
With over 17 years of experience in the sustainability industry, EEI has prepared environmental impact assessments for both major and minor developments.
EIAs are important documents which advise and highlight the environmental consequence of any development to key project personnel and stakeholders. We assess, local flora and fauna as well as impacts associated with groundwater leaching and eutrophication. EEI also has the capabilities to assess cumulative impacts of developmental projects.
EEI provides services for environmental impact assessment for existing or future projects to ensure that minimal stress is placed on our local environments.
In addition, we are also able to provide you with O&M of your water and wastewater assets and facilities.
Environmental and Wastewater Consulting
EEI has been providing leading specialist wastewater treatment advice since 2001. We have authored several leading reports, and undertaken studies for clients such as United Nations agencies, Alcoa, South32 and the MLA. We recognise the importance of listening to our clients needs in order to develop the solutions that are the best fit for their business.
Nutrient and Irrigation Management Plans
EEI has developed a nutrient balance model that considers various parameters including the meteorological factors, soil physics and chemistry, geology, hydrology and hydro-geology, vegetation and nutrient fate including biological, chemical and physical process. This model is applied to estimate the irrigation area to dispose of the treated wastewater. The model is based on a risk approach and combines both fundamental science and engineering practice. By this approach, we have often found that our NIMP requires much less irrigation area than the conventional approach based on Australia wide guidelines.
EEI, is committed in ensuring that all NIMP produced conforms to government regulations and ensures that our environment is exposed to the least amount of risk possible.
Urban Water Management Plans
EEI’s expertise in stormwater management, ground water risk assessment, soil chemistry and wastewater treatment enables us to prepare sound urban water management plans/strategies for your development.
EEI builds a model for every water management plan that is grounded in fundamental science and engineering principles. This gives the client and the regulators a clear picture of the water risks and opportunities specific to the site.
Our detailed scientific approach enables us to offer a broader range of options to the client to reduce water use and protect priority catchments. We work closely with the client to plan the measures that best fit with their vision of the development.
EEI has delivered significant savings to our clients in these types of projects. We have a strong relationship with the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, and we are not afraid to fight for the best outcome for the client. Our scientific and engineering foundation is the key to this regulatory success.
EEI was able to save RED approximately $1 Million AUD through effective stormwater management planning and risk assessment, we also found solutions for wastewater management at White Lakes Brewery, Pickering Brook Primary School and Kirkalocka Gold Mine that allowed them to continue to operate
