Our Student Summer

This summer Peak Associates developed an Industry Project for Lancaster University’s Engineering Department. Eight students formed a team to investigate an engineering solution within a two week consultation. Under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Quayle, the students were working to objectives set by Peak Associates and had a deadline of the end of June 2017.

This year the students were investigating a cost-effect method for extracting solids from effluent generated during an agricultural process. The aim was to reduce total suspended solids being passed through a constructed wetland of settlement ponds and aerated gravel. This was to ultimately improve treatment of ammonia and biochemical oxygen demand; increase the longevity of the wetland; plus reducing wear on pumps.
