At IKAD we understand that we only have one planet, and like you, we want to look after it for future generations. We are committed to environmental sustainability, and it is highly prioritised in all of the work that we undertake.
IKAD are currently in the process of gaining ISO 14001 accreditation, showing our commitment to minimising how our operations negatively affect the environment, complying with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and continually improving in both areas.
Always looking for innovative environmental solutions, IKAD actively use and promote Dynamic Descaler, a liquid descaler that is Biodegradable and safe. A superior alternative to corrosive acid cleaners, such as concentrated hydrochloric acid, it rapidly dissolves all water scale and lime plus it removes mud, rust, and other non-soluble sedimentation deposits safely and effectively.
In partnership with the Water Corporation, IKAD are part of the wastewater treatment projects at Beenyup and Woodmans Point. With recycling our most precious resource, water, at the heart of the projects, we are proud to be an integral part of creating the infrastructure that will ensure a greener, more sustainable Western Australia for future generations to enjoy.
IKAD recognises the impact our activities and more broadly industry in general has on the environment. That is why we are working to achieve a net positive impact from our activities that effect the environment.
At IKAD we see Waste Management particularly with Water as critical to our goal of achieving a Net Positive Impact in relation to our activities that have an impact on the environment. Water is one of the key elements of industry and without it many of the processes industry relies on would not be possible.
An example of our commitment to the environment was IKAD’s key role in the implementation of the Water Corporations Woodman Point and Beenyup Waste Water Treatment Plants. At these plants wastewater is treated and some is used to replenish groundwater for future use. Other by-products created during the process such as Biosolids is used as a soil conditioner for landscaping and agricultural use. The Biogas created resultant of the Biosolids is used to power the plants on-site generators. This makes the plants self-sufficient, with spare electricity available to the Western Power grid.
Further acknowledgement to our management of one of the Earth’s most precious resource water, includes our ongoing involvement with the Degremont Desalination Plant. This facility produces 144ML/day that would otherwise come from our precious underground water stocks or our dams.
