NOVA Acoustics


Industrial & Environmental Permitting

Noise Impact Assessment for a large Yorkshire-based Food Manufacturing Site.

Project Brief: Ten years after establishing their plant in Selby (Yorkshire), Sedamyl – leading manufacturer of starches, sweeteners, proteins and alcohol – announced plans to expand and double production.

Such a significant increase in facility size would of course have an effect on the acoustic environment. We were brought on board to assist with Sedamyl’s environmental permit application process, and went on to conduct extensive analysis and testing of existing noise produced by the large scale site.

Using these results as a baseline, we were able to accurately estimate the change in noise emissions following expansion of the site.

The assessment was carried out in accordance with BS4142:2014 + A1:2019, following which we provided guidance on effective noise control measures.
