The Wrigley Company Pty Ltd
Wrigley anaerobic digester: waste minimisation and energy recovery
$244,192

The Wrigley Asquith site produces several high sugar content waste streams as a result of the manufacturing of confectionary. Wrigley will divert all the organic waste produced at the Asquith site from landfill by installing an anaerobic digester capable of processing all organic waste leaving the factory, all trade waste from site operations and all food waste from the staff canteen. The organic loading (primarily sugar) is readily digestible to yield biogas which will form part of the feedstock for the existing boiler.
