Western Water’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and awareness of the link between climate change and future water resources.
We are reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of energy efficiency measures, renewable energy generation and the purchase of carbon offsets.
Biogas Cogeneration Facility
This $2 million facility captures methane emissions from the water recycling process to produce 100% renewable electricity to operate Melton’s Class A Recycled Water Plant.
In September 2011, the plant was the first of its kind to achieve carbon neutral certification from Low Carbon Australia.
