Over the past seven years handling the Water Pollution Permit (WPP) and concerns with pollutant concentration, CARIRI found that there was a need for interpretation of results and recommendations/solutions requested by clients.  And this need prompted CARIRI to expand its services in the field of Effluent with the establishment of the Effluent Management Solutions (EMS) Unit

As an important, contributing organization to the development of the country, your company needs to ensure that it is compliant with the Environmental Management Authority’s (EMA) Water Pollution Rules and CARIRI is ready to assist you to make your effluent goals a reality.  We have state of the art equipment as well as fully trained and qualified staff who can take you through each step so you never have to worry about where you are in the process.  In addition to this, the Institute is accredited and has been maintaining international accreditation for both ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 standards for the past 15 years.

Why use EMS services?

  • Treatability Studies – tool to determine which solution will be the best option based on effluent generated by the Client’s Facility
  • Technically Independent Assessment -  solutions offered are not alignedwith any supplier or technology
  • Client Specific Solutions – based on needs, specification and budget
  • Space Specific Designs – based on physical space available

QAPP   - Documentation governing the testing laboratory and the quality assurance of the data obtained – both sampling and analysis

PPCP – Engineering Control Plan to deal with non-conforming data

BMPP – Administrative Plan to deal with non-conforming data.

 By managing all three aspects, you will be able to:

  • Take an holistic approach to the management of the Water Pollution Permit
  • Be in conformance with legislative requirements under the WPP – prevents fines and penalties
  • Lower/Reduce Expenditure – testing services reduced and lower permit cost – variation in your 5 year permit
  • Protect the Ecosystem -  Health, Safety and Environmental value added – Reduction in Pollutant Loading – Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Ensure that Production Optimization occurs
  • Build staff competency in house – greater productivity at no increased cost
  • Customize Solutions
