Sludge Screens Mean Large Savings


National Waste Management Services company, IWJS, invests in CDEnviro’s MSU:10 mobile sludge screens resulting in 97% reduction in waste to landfill for Anglian Water

IWJS, the national waste management services company, has invested in MSU:10 mobile sludge screens from CDEnviro to increase its customers’ operational efficiencies and reduce landfill requirements.

The solution is a single unit which efficiently separates liquids and solids in waste water, and decreases waste volumes; therefore reducing the landfill requirement and creating large savings for customers, including Thames Water and Anglian Water. 

Peter Maasz, Business Development Director at IWJS, said, “Apart from the significant cost savings for Anglian, it’s the dramatic saving in the original volume of waste to landfill that’s particularly impressive, more than 97%. The actual solids were reduced down to a mere fraction and naturally, this had a major impact on the amount of tankering that was finally needed on the job with major benefits to the environment.”

Peter Hayes, Business Development Executive at CDEnviro, said, “The portable MSU:10 allows for an immediate start-up thanks to its built-in control system. The unit allows for quick and safe access, allowing IWJS clients to carry out essential maintenance. We’ve designed and built it with safety in mind. We know that any downtime can be costly in terms of lost hours, reduced output and a backlog of waste material to be processed. As well as benefitting the customer, reduced landfill has a positive impact on the environment, which is central to our objective of achieving zero waste.”
