COLLABORATION ALLOWS GOLDEN ACRES TO STAY ON TOP OF ODOUR EMISSIONS
A multi-million pound turnover pet food production company has begun work on a £500,000 extension to manage odour emission levels.
Golden Acres in Preston has joined forces with Staffordshire odour abatement specialist Air Management and Design to design, manufacture and install a number of fume scrubbing units, duct work and chimneys on their 2500-acre site.
The extension is part of a £12m project to increase capacity at the factory, which manufactures dog and cat biscuits.
Golden Acres Project Manager Ian Barnes said: We have worked successfully with AMD on the development of our plant environmental controls for the last two years.
As a farm diversification in green belt area, it is essential that Golden Acres Pet Food Partners plan the development with empathy to the surrounding areas.
Without the forward thinking, innovative and open-minded approach to problem solving that AMD provide this would not have been possible.
The units will allow Golden Acres to maintain the emissions level deemed acceptable by the guidelines laid down by DEFRA in the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
The highly-specialised project is the latest such installation by Newcastle-under-Lyme based AMD.
They have also worked on similar constructions for animal rendering firm J. Pointon & Sons and pig farmer Clarkes of Melton.
Managing Director Steve Evans said Golden Acres had looked all over the world for a company who could handle this project from start to finish.
They had been speaking to a company in Belgium, because no-one in the UK has the ability to design, manufacture and install this type of ductwork.
I think the wide range of services we can offer is what made the difference in this case, as well as our competitive pricing."
