Posted on July 8, 2013 by 1 Comment

Athenry Mart Co-Op has awarded Molloy Environmental Systems, a division of Molloy Precast, Tullamore, the contract to construct a new wastewater treatment plant to treat animal wastewater collected in the Mart. The system to be installed uses a novel wastewater treatment technology, developed locally by NUI Galway and licenced to Molloy Environmental Systems, known as the “Pumped Flow Biofilm Reactor” (PFBR). The contract was awarded due to this technologies numerous benefits including; low energy costs, ability to handle strong influents (Typical of that emitted from Marts), low maintenance costs and low sludge yields. The company have installed this technology in numerous villages and are working with other industrial applications such as Fish processing facilities. The Athenry Mart project is expected to commence in September of this year and is to be completed within 4 months. The treated effluent from the plant is to be discharged into the town’s wastewater treatment plant before being discharged into the Clarinbridge River.

Shannonbridge 500 PE WWTP

Posted on May 31, 2013 by 1 Comment

Molloy Environmental Systems have developed a Plug and Play wastewater treatment plant using PFBR technology. The first application of this technology is a 500 PE equivalent (225litres/person/day) wastewater treatment plant at Shannonbridge, County Offaly.

The use of a plug and play containerised system suited this site due to the risk of flooding. The existing Imhoff tank was utilised as a primary settlement tank, precast concrete tanks were installed for balancing and a concrete base was constructed for the Plug and Play PFBR unit. A precast concrete screen chamber was installed for preliminary screening.
