Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, Lisa Neville, has announced Australia’s first organic waste processing facility specifically built for providing electricity for water treatment.

The $27million Yarra Valley Water’s Waste to Energy facility in Wollert (VIC) will support local businesses by making the recycling of commercial organic waste easier and more affordable.

The facility will produce electricity to run Yarra Valley’s adjacent water treatment plant with surplus power being exported to the electricity grid as renewable energy.

This environmentally sustainable alternative to landfill will not only benefit the environment, it will reduce the cost of living for communities by providing new revenue streams to keep the pressure off water prices.
