Case Study: Smart Interceptor Alarms help Antalis to Save Money and Reduce Their Carbon Footprint
Antalis is Europe's leading distributor of paper, packaging solutions and visual communication products. They are always looking at ways to improve their environmental pollution control, reduce the waste removed from their sites and to reduce their overall carbon footprint.
Antalis have always ensured clean and well-maintained sites, which involves the annual cleaning of road drains and oil interceptors/separators, with all relevant waste controls and documentation being in place for environmental accountability.
County Drains Leicester Ltd has been carrying out these planned cleans on two separate sites for several years. As County Drains also has ISO 9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 certifications, they also proactively use their knowledge and experience to assist in the improvement of Antalis’s environmental policies.
Durable Drainage Labels
We started initially by supplying and fixing self-adhesive drain labels to all utility hole covers on-site. Each label is coloured, identifying the drain type and has an arrow showing which way the drain flows. These weather-proof and durable labels identify drains for staff and contractors on-site, and their durable nature means they save time and money by not having to be repainted every couple of years, as is the case with traditional labels.
Smart Oil Interceptor Alarms
This year, County Drains Leicester Ltd developed their own cloud-based smart monitoring system for monitoring oil separators and pumping stations. The system used at Antalis monitors for high oil levels within an oil separator and sends alert messages to a cloud-based portal, which is accessed at Antalis via a standard web browser.
