Melton Waste to Energy Project

Western Water has developed a business case to treat organic food waste at Melton Recycled Water Plant (RWP) to generate additional biogas for renewable energy use on site.

The Melton Waste to Energy Project presents an ideal opportunity to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions while decreasing the amount of local food waste going to landfill, and associated transportation costs.

When the new anaerobic digester is fully commissioned in early 2019, it is expected a trial to accept food waste will commence while Western Water explores further opportunities for supplier partnerships through a tender process. View the pre-tender information via the link below.

The Melton Waste to Energy Project, which has been supported by a grant from Sustainability Victoria’s Waste to Energy Infrastructure fund, is expected to be operational in 2020.
