13 August 2018

A new multi-million dollar waste-to-fuel plant has been opened in Sydney at Wetherhill Park by ResourceCo in a joint venture with Cleanway, an industrial and environmental services company.

The new faculity will divert more than 50,000 truckloads of waste from landfill and will reduce the country's dependence on coal and petcoke.

Ben Salway, CEO of Sustainable Energy at ResourceCo, said: "It will replace over 100,000t of coal usage per year alone and will take the equivalent of 20,000 cars annually off the road in terms of greenhouse gas emissions."

The Wetherill Park plant is licensed to receive up to 250,000tpa of dry commercial and industrial and mixed construction and demolition waste, recovering commodities such as metal, clean timber and inert materials for recycling, with the balance converted into Processed Engineering Fuel (PEF).

ResourceCo is a major industry supplier to the international cement sector.
