Our Soil Receival Building (SRB) expansion at SOLVE, Altona is now complete. This new space will double our acceptance and storage area, resulting in 24/6 operation of the facility.
The new SRB is one of Australia’s biggest, enabling us to receive larger amount of contaminated waste and pre-treat and prepare it for thermal treatment. By expanding the footprint of the SRB, we will not only increase the facility throughput from 55,000Tpa to 70,000Tpa, but will also improve the materials handling to include liquids and sludges.
This would enable us to capture a greater portion of the waste market and place us in a position to assist in new problematic waste streams that tend to be sent to landfill because of limited options. Ensuring greater storage for materials will regain any lost efficiencies and will allow SOLVE to be reactive and agile in a competitive landscape.
Dino Adikaram, our Manager – SOLVE, explains, “This expansion will further enhance our support for a Circular Economy and continue to strengthen our vision of diverting hazardous waste from landfill.”
Our current treatment capability:
SOLVE is EPA licenced to treat over 20 categories of complex contaminants including PFAS.
