Victoria’s first energy from waste licence awarded to Maryvale ‘Energy from Waste’ project

The Maryvale Energy from Waste (EfW) project has been successfully awarded the first Energy from Waste licence from Recycling Victoria under the Waste to Energy Scheme.

The EfW facility will process non-recyclable municipal solid waste (MSW) that would otherwise go to landfill, to generate energy for the Maryvale pulp and paper mill. By doing so, it aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Victoria by an estimated 270,000 tonnes per year, which is equivalent to taking 50,000 cars off the road annually.

The Maryvale Energy from Waste (EfW) project is developed by a consortium of partners including Opal, Veolia and Masdar Tribe Australia.
