Trade Effluent Discharge

Irish Water defines Trade Effluent as "any liquid waste (other than domestic wastewater and storm water) that is discharged from a business premises to the public sewers." A Trade Effluent Discharge to Sewer Licence may be required if your business plans to discharge to the council sewer.

Fitz Scientific offers a monitoring service to ensure your business is compliant with the conditions of this licence including sampling and accredited analysis for many of the parameters to be tested. In general Trade Effluent can contain materials such as fats, oils and grease, ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, sulphate, detergents/surfactants, heavy metals or food waste. Tests can include on site pH and Temperature readings.

Our field technicians are experts in the taking of samples from trade effluent discharge points. Samples can be taken as specified by the licence conditions and tested in our in house laboratory. Results are issued on an official certificate of analysis. Any exceedances of permitted values can be highlighted along with the results.
