ARL Consulting Services FAQ's

Yes we can!

ARL look to establish best practice for the site as a whole, rather than concentrating on end of pipe solutions. Water needs to be considered as a raw material in its own right which leads to the use of treated effluent as a low or high grade process water. Solutions are established depending on the technical requirements and the cost of treatment compared with raw water costs.

Also, as engineers we are guilty of referring to COD. The COD should be considered as having originally been a raw material, and an effluent treatment plants lost product - and subsequently a lost profit!!

ARL can provide senior staff with expert knowledge in key areas of water and effluent management.

A number of our staff have extensive experience working alongside specialist law firms, on a wide range of environmental issues and contaminated land / land remediation law.

No problem. ARL provide manpower and / or operational advice during the critical commissioning stage of any new treatment process, this can lead to the rapid adoption of a turn key project by company operational personnel.

ARL Consulting can maintain involvement at any level required to ensure the ongoing efficient, cost-effective operation of the process, this can range from occasional reviews of operational data to more regular service visits and proactive involvement in plant operations.
