Teys Beenleigh WWTP & Bio-Gas Recovery
The history of successful project completions between CEQ and Teys continued with the Beenleigh Waste Water and Bio-Gas Collection project. The scope of the works was to upgrade the current wastewater treatment system at the Teys Beenleigh facility to include a Covered Anaerobic Lagoon (CAL) with capacity for the capturing of biogas for flaring and boiler fuel, and an installation of a pond based Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) plant including an aeration system, clarifier system and capacity for dewatering sludge (WAS).
The clients objectives were to reduce the quantity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from anaerobic treatment of effluent by capture and destruction of biogas, and to remove potential financial liability for carbon emissions from waste water treatment under a Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme as well as the reuse of biogas in a boiler to offset site natural gas usage. This project provided CEQ with exposure to previously unseen technologies and proved to be a value experience for all involved.
