The Merck Millipore Plant in Cork is one of the most advanced plants in the pharmaceutical sector in Europe. Due to the successful growth of the Merck Millipore manufacturing facility, there is now a requirement to expand the capacity of their wastewater treatment works to accommodate this expansion and ensure compliance with effluent standards.
