BioCoal Group Pty Ltd

Earthcare SRF manufacturing facility
$2,645,000

BioCoal will develop a new facility in the Newcastle region to recover up to 28,000 tonnes of organic material from kerbside residual waste each year. This facility will produce a product with high carbon content, suitable for use in the steel industry.

Dial-A-Dump (EC) Pty Ltd

Geneses Xero Waste C&I Plant
$5,000,000

Dial-A-Dump will establish a new $20 million facility in Blacktown with the capacity to process 455,000 tonnes of mixed commercial and industrial waste each year. The facility will initially process around 126,000 tonnes a year, and expects to ramp up processing volumes year-on-year.

The project will recover materials to be processed for a 'higher and better' use including plastics, metals, timber, paper and cardboard. Once an energy from waste facility is available, Dial-a-Dump intend to eventually recover up to 89 per cent of all waste processed at this facility.

Doyle Bros

Doyle Bros C&I materials recovery facility
$1,000,000

Doyle Bros will establish a new material recovery facility in Fairfield to process around 17,000 tonnes of dry commercial and industrial waste each year. This facility will achieve 70 per cent recovery by expanding its current paper and cardboard recycling operations to also recover mixed metals and plastics. This project will initially divert around 11,900 tonnes per annum of material from landfill. The residual waste may be turned into a refuse derived fuel suitable for generating energy, once an energy from waste facility becomes available.

Newcastle City Council

Summerhill C&I Dirty MRF
$1,937,500

The City of Newcastle currently landfills between 50,000 and 70,000 tonnes of solid waste each year from commercial and industrial (C&I) sources. The City of Newcastle will establish a new specialised facility to manage mixed waste including food waste. It is expected to recover over 19,500 tonnes per annum (around 28 per cent) of dry recyclables from this material, such as paper, cardboard, metals and plastics.

PGM Refiners Pty Ltd

NSW next generation e-waste recycling facility
$1,050,000

PGM Refiners will establish a next generation e-waste recycling facility in Western Sydney. This facility will recycle over 13,800 tonnes of e-waste each year, processing challenging materials such as flat panel displays and safely managing products containing hazardous mercury.

Relivit Holdings Pty

Relivit recycling resource recovery project - Nowra
$1,300,000

Relivit will construct and operate a $10.9 million facility to process up to 30,000 tonnes of absorbent hygiene waste each year, including nappies and adult hygiene products. This facility will recover plastic, paper fibre and super absorbent polymers to be sold into large existing markets. Markets include animal litter, wood substitute and plastic commodity markets.

ResourceCo RRF Pty Ltd

ResourceCo Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF) facility
$5,000,000

ResourceCo will develop a new facility at Eastern Creek with capacity to recover 110,000 tonnes of dry mixed commercial and industrial waste each year. The facility is expected to achieve 95 per cent diversion from landfill, recovering metals and timber, as well as over 57,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel for use in energy generation.
