The UK transport system, whilst often having limited treatment facilities, does employ significant anti-pollution measures to capture any spillages or washings from sites. For example, car parks, rail yards and airports have large areas that accumulate rainwater than can become contaminated with any fuels or other pollutants present in the area.
Interceptor technology is often employed to capture these pollutants prior to discharge of the captured rainwater to the environment. Management of these interceptors is key to ensuring the environment is protected and the operator’s duty of care upheld.
Alpheus has a dedicated Waste Management & Recycling department dedicated to providing these services. This includes a team who have expertise on the legislation associated with these assets and data capture software that ensures our clients can clearly demonstrate that they have complied with their duty of care.
