The Liquid Waste Members of ESPA paid a working visit to the new Liquid Waste Treatment Plant under construction at the ACARP in Adjei Kotoku on Thursday, 6th August, 2015.
The essence of the trip was for ESPA Liquid Waste Members to be briefed on the facility and for them to make input, if any, to make the facility more suitable for their use.
During the visit, Mr Michael Padi Tuwor took members through the operations of ACARP plant at the facility’s engine room. Members of the visiting team were impressed by the technology used at the facility to separate the different streams of solid waste at the facility and the fact that the entire operations can be watched live in the engine room. According to Mr Padi, the plant has a capacity to process 600 tons of solid waste a day but not operating at full capacity at the time of the visit.
The team was then taken through a tour of the Liquid Waste Treatment Plant under construction. The entire cycle from discharging, treatment and utilization of the byproducts from the treatment process was explained to the team by Mr. Jacob Nkunu of ACARP. The liquid waste members were impressed by the size of the plant and technology of the facility under constriction. The team pledged to put the facility to good use when it becomes operational.
