Hall and Woodhouse Environmental Permit

HalpinRobbins prepared a Bespoke Environmental Permit for Hall and Woodhouse Ltd, Blandford St Mary, Dorset; the home of Badger Beer.

Hall and Woodhouse Brewery had been granted planning permission for a new Water Purification Plant to treat the spent process water from their brewing and packaging activities.

With capacity to treat over 500cubm of spent process water the Water Purification Plant reduces the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Ammonia and Suspended solids within the waste water through a process of anaerobic digestion; producing high methane biogas. The biogas generated is then combust in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to provide electricity and heat back to the main Hall and Woodhouse Brewery.

HalpinRobbins were commissioned to assess the new plant and prepare all the required documentation for a Bespoke Installation Environmental Permit. It was requested by the client that all works be completed within 21 days of commissioning so that the permit application could be submitted and, with agreement from the regulator, the plant could begin commissioning.

After undertaking a desk based review of the design and development documents, environmental setting and impact-risk analysis for the new plant HalpinRobbins ground truthed the site and plant and commenced detailed talks with the Environment Agency.

Within the agreed timescale HalpinRobbins had completed all works including site condition report, environmental management system, operational and environmental risk assessments and application forms.

HalpinRobbins liaised with the Environment Agency throughout the production of the bespoke permit application and continued to do so through determination of the application.
