Avertas Energy to generate energy from waste in Australian first
Salher collaborates in a pioneering waste-to-energy generation project in Australia
Aug 27, 2021
Among other projects to curb climate change, Australia is in the process of building its first waste-to-energy power plant. To treat the polluted water generated in this plant, the construction company has relied on Salher’s experience.
Waste-to-energy power plants are particularly interesting integrated waste management solutions because they give a second life to waste, turning it into renewable and clean energy.
This Australian plant will transform into electricity and construction materials up to 400,000 tonnes of domestic, commercial and industrial waste (a quarter of the annual waste of the capital city where it is being built), which would otherwise go to landfill.
Salher has collaborated in this EPC project by designing, manufacturing and supplying two large capacity hydrocarbon separating equipment, with by-pass and control system, to treat industrial wastewaters containing hydrocarbons and mineral oils derived from this plant.
