Energy from Waste

While our Maryvale Mill in the Latrobe Valley is Victoria’s largest generator of baseload renewable energy, we are also the state’s largest industrial user of natural gas and a significant electricity consumer, facing increasing energy prices and supply uncertainty.

Energy from Waste facility

We are currently partnering with SUEZ to develop a $600 million Energy from Waste facility for our Maryvale site. The facility would reduce Victoria’s net CO2 emissions by an estimated 543,000 tonnes annually. This project would support Maryvale’s 850 jobs, create a further 1,046 Victorian jobs each year for the three years of construction and 911 direct and indirect jobs thereafter.

Key information

Feasibility Study Report 2019

To help manage our energy costs, Australian Paper is proposing to construct a thermal Energy from Waste (EfW) plant adjacent to our Maryvale Paper Mill site in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria. This technology creates energy from the controlled combustion of non-hazardous waste materials that would otherwise go to landfill.
