“Getting a different perspective often leads to innovative solutions”, a principle which led us to become an innovative leader in the Australian waste recovery sector by addressing urban waste management in a different way – with the perspective of approaching it as a resource.
Our key objective is to divert household waste away from disposal at landfill. To do this, we apply process engineering expertise to recover resources from the waste stream utilising technology that separates and cleans the organic fraction of the waste and recovers recyclables to end user requirements. This approach is generally referred to as Alternative Waste Treatment (AWT) technologies.
We have been a pioneer in developing this approach in Australia and have built and now operate the largest AWT facility in the southern hemisphere with 220,000 tonnes of household waste processed each year at our Eastern Creek Urban Resource – Reduction, Recovery and Recycling (UR-3R) Facility, in Sydney.
Our technology provides the flexibility to adapt to the variability of the waste stream in order to convert it into the most desirable products. This creates long term value for our customers and for the environment.
