Circular Plastics Australia required a wastewater system at its new plastics recycling facility in Laverton, Victoria. The plant’s focus will be recycling 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.
Aerofloat’s wastewater treatment system utilises its proprietary AeroDAF technology and dewatering to ensure compliant effluent.
Aerofloat has worked with Circular Plastics Australia on multiple projects to ensure compliant wastewater.
Aerofloat’s design allows for further water saving options for the Circular Plastics Australia site in the future if required.
The entire plant was automated to ensure low maintenance for operators.
Aerofloat has designed and built the wastewater treatment system for Circular Plastics Australia in Laverton, Melbourne after its success with the Albury plant.
Following the plastics recycling industry boom in Australia with the inception of the National Plastics Plan in 2021, Aerofloat has become the go-to wastewater treatment company for new projects.
Aerofloat has been working in the plastics recycling industry for eight years, designing major wash water and wastewater solutions that meet the specific criteria of multiple companies and councils across the eastern board. The company has won awards for its innovative designs and is now the industry’s go-to wastewater engineering company in Australia.
Aerofloat designed and built the wastewater treatment system for Circular Plastics Australia’s first plant, located in Albury New South Wales and its Laverton and Altona North plants in Melbourne.
