Adblue and the environment

Adblue and the environment

Adblue is soluble in water and Environment Agency advice is it should be kept away from surface water drainage systems which discharge to the environment. Yet most refuelling areas are not fully enclosed and therefore obtain considerable flows during windy rainfall events. As such most Sewerage Authorities will refuse to take such flows, or class them as trade flows if they do have spare capacity. To any extent, EA advice is in favour of sustainable drainage systems for such areas. Some industry advice can be in direct...

Petrol stations and vehicle repair garages

Petrol stations and vehicle repair garages

We have experience in the civil design of petrol stations and vehicle repair centres. Many existing and new centres are badly designed with basic separators and a failure to provide separation and water quality treatment. Such centres are often a hot spot for pollution to watercourses and groundwater. We are keen to assist Forecourt operators in evaluating their existing operation water quality risks and solutions. We can also design the civil works for the stations. ( Mechnical, Electrical and Fuel by others) We have worked closely with the...
