We regularly monitor each asset’s management of water and waste. Half of our assets have implemented a waste prevention and reduction plan. Four of our projects in construction have achieved reuse and recycling rates of over 90 per cent – using initiatives such as reuse of crushed concrete. These include initiatives such as the use of recycled materials to modernise the I-75 road in Michigan.
Reducing waste on the I-75
East Rockingham, an Energy from Waste plant in construction in Australia, will convert 300,000 tonnes of waste per year to provide energy for homes and businesses. Methane emissions from landfill have ~25 times the atmospheric heating potential of CO2, therefore by avoiding these methane emissions there is a net environmental benefit for Energy from Waste plants.
