Circular Plastics Australia’s new plant in Altona North, Victoria, will recycle high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) plastics from the Melbourne community. It required a wastewater treatment solution that would meet Melbourne city’s strict trade waste requirements.
Circular Plastics Australia’s new plant in Laverton, Victoria, required a wastewater treatment solution that would meet Melbourne city’s strict trade waste requirements. Aerofloat has worked with Circular Plastics Australia on multiple projects to ensure compliant wastewater.
Wastewater and wash line system ensures quality and growth assured for plastics recycling plant in Victoria. Aerofloat recently installed a wastewater treatment system at GT Recycling in Moolap, Victoria to wash the recycled plastic to ensure quality products for their customers.
Located in Albury-Wodonga, the Circular Plastics facility is a joint venture between Asahi Beverages, Pact Group Holdings Ltd and Cleanaway Waste Management Ltd. Australian company Aerofloat was contracted to design and construct the wastewater treatment system for the project to ensure clean, reusable wash water within the plant and a sustainable end-product.
Aerofloat’s design allowed for increases in flow rates and ammonia concentration during peak flows. The plant achieved results beyond the initial scope, managing peak loads of 2000mg/L of ammonia and still achieved strict Sydney water ammonia and nitrogen discharge limits.
