Current New South Wales Chullora

Chullora Development Update

As part of the Stage 2 development to reinvigorate the Chullora Resource Recovery Park, SUEZ plans to develop a Resource Processing Facility (RPF) to ensure we have the infrastructure required to drive resource recovery and reduce waste going to landfill.

Key features of the proposal:

1. Investment in a $40 million state-of-the-art Resource Processing Facility to recover recyclables and convert non-recyclable materials into Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF)

2. Offering advanced resource recovery services to the Sydney market by adding 250,000 tonnes per annum recovery capacity

3. PEF would be used as an alternative fuel source to recover energy, reduce emissions and support the transition to a low carbon future

4. There are no significant negative impacts to the environment or the community

5. Construction of the plant would create more than 40 direct construction jobs and 30 direct operational jobs

RPF Process

SUEZ’s Resource Processing Facility (RPF) uses the latest technology to maximise the recovery of recyclable materials from waste including metals, plastics, timber and fine materials. The recovered products are transported to manufacturers for reprocessing or beneficial reuse.

Non-recyclable materials are turned into a Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF), a safe and sustainable alternative fuel source.

Through advanced mechanical processing technology, the plant would significantly reduce waste to landfill, lower carbon emissions and support the recycling.
