Crown Property Services Award – Environmental Sustainability Award 2017
Eastern Liquid Services is proud to announce that we have recently won an award for ‘Environmental Sustainability’ at the Crown Property Services Awards night.
Criteria for the award was to demonstrate sustainable initiatives carried out for Crown and the proven environmental benefits. Crown has been a long-standing customer for Eastern Liquid Services, for almost 10 years we have provided Crown with an innovative and environmentally sustainable grease trap collection and treatment service.
Throughout the years of service, two significant environmental initiatives that ELS has brought to fruition are:
Managing on site amenity (reducing bad odours):
There was previously an issue with odour generated from servicing the grease traps in the multi-level car park – this was persistent and caused displeasure to visitors and employees. After much research and careful consideration, it was decided the best course of action was to vent the exhaust fumes from the grease trap pump directly into the existing vents. This method was incredibly successful and the number of complaints dramatically reduced to a minimum.
100% Recycling of Organic Grease Trap Waste:
Since the opening of our own liquid treatment facility (OES) in 2013, Eastern Liquid Services has been able to provide Crown 100% recycling for the organic grease trap waste collected. At OES, all grease trap waste is recycled into an organic carbon fertiliser and is used for the production of food and fibre.
Once the Crown grease trap waste arrives at OES it undergoes several treatment processes including:
- Gravity separation of Fats, Oils and Grease.
- pH adjustment and solids removal through the use of a centrifuge.
- Organic cake is sent to composter to ensure closed loop recycling of all organic solid materials derived from the liquid recycling facility.
Eastern Liquid Services is honoured to be the recipient of the Crown ‘Environmental Sustainability Award 2017’ and looks forward to working closely with Crown and further developing and innovating environmental solutions for our client.
