IPPC and Remediation, Electroplating Facility, UK

Client: Confidential
Location: Dorset, UK
Date: 2002 - Ongoing
Project: Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) support to obtain IPPC authorisation and subsequent site remediation for an electroplating facility

Abricon initially carried out an invasive ESA for the client to prepare a baseline contamination report. This formed part of the Site Report, a requirement for submission of an IPPC authorisation application.

Abricon provided assistance to the client to carry out a review of BAT (Best Available Technique) applied at the site to minimise releases to all three environmental media.

The invasive programme required to establish the baseline contamination levels also indicated levels of chromium contamination beneath the site which required remedial action, and a voluntary remediation scheme was agreed with the regulator. Under the scheme, chromium-contaminated groundwater will be removed from the site by pumping and will be treated in the existing on-site liquid effluent treatment plant to clean it sufficiently for discharge to the foul sewer, under the terms of an existing permit.
