Spill Response Products and WWTP Baffles for Utilities and Energy

Among the unique environmental challenges faced by the Utilities & Energy industry, we identify the need for spill response products to be most important.  Therefore we have some information about scenarios that could lead to a spill and how to deal with hazardous chemical spills and preventing them.

Secondly, in the case of Waste Water Treatment, Chatoyer has a solution for improving flows and retention times in tanks and settlement ponds.

1. Spill response products

Spill control and containment products are a must because they make it possible to clean up a spill when it happens. Above all, keep spill control products in the vicinity of any potential spill risk. When preparing for a spill emergency, there are some things to know first. For instance, you will need to know if your organisation already has a plan for responding to spills. After evaluating these plans, you can determine what you will need to have on hand to deal with the spill emergencies.

How to understand your risks:

There are many places you can find information that will help you determine what you need. For instance, spill response guidelines within your organisation or from local authorities. Here are some place you can look:

  • Evaluate your organisations Emergency Response Plan to learn what is required for spill prevention, clean up and incident reporting.
  • Refer to the Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP)
  • Consult local Fire and Rescue, EPA and Safework authorities to get advice on what measures can be taken to manage spills and chemical spill clean up.
Determining what spill response products you need:

Once you have learned about spill response plans, then you will have a better idea of what the risks may be in your workplace. Here are some ways to determine what spill response products will be required in your situation:

  • Find out what equipment is a potential spill risk. Include equipment that uses hazardous chemicals such as coolant, hydraulic fluid, oil, fuel, diesel etc.
  • Determine the scenarios in which spill prevention, stormwater protection and spill control will be needed.
  • Determine the types of accidents that could release hazardous chemicals into the environment such as equipment leaks, vehicle accident or a major spill.
  • Take inventory of the hazardous chemicals and materials used, stored and transported in your workplace or mobile work sites.

2.  Settling basins, lagoons and tanks

Sediment ponds, settlement basins and sedimentation tanks can have short circuiting flows. Consequently, performance is less than optimal and can be improved for better waste water treatment efficiency. Performance of these systems directly affect the following process. Therefore, it’s important to evaluate if a change is appropriate and can improve the performance.

In conclusion, we recommend a range of stormwater management, containment and bunding and spill response products. Above all, these recommended products will ensure your organisation protects the environment. Please click on a question relevant to your organisation for more information.
