Circular Plastics Australia required a wastewater treatment plant that would allow for expansion of the recycling facility in the future.
The system needed to ensure an odour-free end product and ensure sustainable and efficient operations.
Aerofloat installed its circular dissolved air flotation unit, the AeroCircDAF, to treat higher flow volumes of wash water if needed as the facility grows.
It also included its fully automated, intelligent PLC control system to accommodate the integration of additional Aerofloat technology as the business expands.
Aerofloat’s partnership with Circular Plastics Australia ensured compliant wastewater that can be reused as wash water within the recycling plant, helping to reduce the company’s footprint further with significant savings on water usage.
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.
The project heralds the third venture that Astron Sustainability, a subsidiary of Pact Group, and Aerofloat has worked on together.
Aerofloat’s design ensured a sustainable, long-term solution for Circular Plastics. Clean wastewater from the system is either re-used as wash water within the plastics recycling facility or discharged to sewer. Aerofloat worked closely with the local council to ensure its strict policies and guidelines around managing microplastics in its inland waterways are met.
Aerofloat has created sustainable wastewater treatment designs for major plastics recycling businesses across Australia. The Australian, family-owned company has been awarded for its innovative approach to tackling plastics recycling wastewater issues and offers unique, patented designs to ensure economical and environmentally sustainable solutions for the industry.

Aerofloat designed and constructed a wastewater treatment system for Circular Plastics Australia to ensure clean, reusable wash water within the plant and a sustainable end-product. Located in Albury-Wodonga, the Circular Plastics facility was a joint venture between Pact Group, Cleanaway Waste Management Ltd, Asahi Beverages, and new partner Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP).
Circular Plastics Australia (PET) is leading the charge with the construction of a world-class recycling facility in Victoria, with the Albury-Wodonga facility recycling the equivalent of around one billion 600ml PET bottles annually. The resulting recycled plastic will be used to produce new bottles as well as food and beverage packaging.
Aerofloat’s wastewater treatment plant design ensured a sustainable, long-term solution for Circular Plastics. Clean wastewater from the system is discharged to sewer and has an optional reuse loop to be used within the facility. Aerofloat is working closely with the local council to ensure its strict policies and guidelines around managing microplastics in its inland waterways are met.
