CRS, ActewAGL Retail and waste-to-energy
One of the key pathways options to achieving the outcomes of the ACT Government Waste Feasibility Study is waste-to-energy. On 7 March 2014 the ACT Government announced in a media release titled “Turning Waste Into Energy”, that it was seeking private sector solutions to develop waste-to-energy technology within the ACT. The government statement said:

“A regional materials recovery and bioenergy facility could convert ACT and regional organic waste into renewable electricity, with enough energy to power over 15,000 Canberra households, once the facility is fully operational. It can also recover high-value plastics and metals that would otherwise end up in landfill. Bioenergy is widely used in northern Europe as a clean, renewable source for producing energy.”

As a result of this government initiative, and other waste-to-energy pathways considered in the Waste Feasibility Study, CRS formed a Joint Venture with ActewAGL Retail. The JV considered a range of WtE technologies and examined the most successful and environmentally beneficial plants operating around the world. The JV then began an extensive community consultation program to gauge support for such a proposal. After many months, and meetings with hundreds of people, it became apparent that the Canberra community was not ready for WtE at this stage. While there is widespread support for such a proposal, a large proportion of the population clearly needed more time to understand the technology and environmental outcomes. CRS decided to remove the WtE component from the proposal and instead work with Veolia to send non-recyclable residues to the Woodlawn Bioreactor.
