Case Study 12

When the Millennium drought and Melbourne Australia’s growing population put a greater strain on finite resources like water and energy, Weltec Biopower, a bioenergy producer, and engineers, Aquatec Maxcon, brought their expertise to Yarra Valley Water to build a waste-to-energy facility. The Aurora waste-to-energy plant processes commercial food waste into clean, renewable energy. This in turn generates enough biogas to run the existing Aurora sewage treatment plant and the new recycled water facility, with the surplus energy being sold or exported to the electrical grid.
