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.
Aerofloat designed and installed a wastewater treatment plant consisting of its proprietary AeroDAF technology, alongside screening, pH correction and a dewatering system.
Aerofloat designed a system that would manage production growth at the site over time.
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 worked with Circular Plastics Australia on multiple ventures, the new Melbourne plant is expected to be operational in 2023.
Following the announcement of the National Plastics Plan; Pact Group, Cleanaway, Asahi Beverages, and Coca-Cola Europacific Partners formed a joint venture known as Circular Plastics Australia.
“The joint venture has created a complete supply chain of recycled plastic in Australia on a scale that has never been seen before,” said Michael Anderson, GM of Projects and Engineering for Aerofloat.
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 designed and built the wastewater treatment system for Circular Plastics Australia’s first plant, located in Albury New South Wales prior to its Laverton and Altona North plants in Melbourne. Circular Plastic Australia’s plant in Altona North is expected to be operational by mid-2023.
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.
