Tested and suitable for applications of up to 300 population equivalent in a single tank and up to 1000 population equivalent in modular form, Kingspan’s BioDisc® BD-BN range is suitable for a variety of projects and has been successfully supplied around the world, including Australia, the Middle East and countless installations across Europe and Scandinavia.

The Kingspan Commercial BioDisc® Wastewater Treatment Plant was selected for the Byerwen Coalmine in North Queensland, an open cut coal mine that produces 10 million tonnes of hard coking coal per year. Due to the mine’s remote location, there is an accommodation village located on site to house 300 of the mine’s workers.

Kingspan, working with the mine’s main plumbing contractor, installed a Twin BM BioDisc® Wastewater Treatment Plant. This treatment plant provides a compact and cost effective solution designed to service up to the 72,000 litres of wastewater produced daily.

A major requirement for the mine operator was to reduce the overall environmental impact of any system installed. So the production of high quality effluent from the wastewater treatment system, with minimal energy consumption, was a very important factor. This was made possible with the Twin BM BioDisc® Wastewater Treatment Plant, which provides a compact, cost effective and fully compliant way to effectively treat, pump and separate wastewater.

Following biological treatment, the wastewater from the site is disinfected and then pumped to an irrigation system for disposal, meeting all the mine’s requirements and expectations.

The key features of the BioDisc® Wastewater Treatment Plant are:

  • Noise-free and odourless operation
  • Fully removable lid for easy maintenance and de-sludging
  • Minimal service and maintenance levels required
  • Advanced control panel options available with telemetry monitoring for total peace of mind
  • Single piece tank design reducing time on site for system installation
  • ‘Plug and Play’ system with all system functions pre-set from the factory
  • Lowest operational and maintenance costs in its class
  • Unique Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) Technology with patented managed flow design to ensure optimum treatment efficiency at all times

The Kingspan Commercial BioDisc® Wastewater Treatment Plant is suited to many different applications: recreation sites such as caravan/camping grounds, hotels, restaurants and country parks; commercial and industrial applications such as service stations, mine camps, factories and offices; and domestic and government applications such as schools, retirement homes, housing developments and council depots.
