SUEZ-ResourceCo Alternative Fuels

Commissioned in November 2006, the SUEZ-ResourceCo ARRT Facility in Wingfield, South Australia, is the only one of its kind in Australia.

The SUEZ-ResourceCo Alternative Fuels facility was created to take advantage of synergies between three companies:

  • SUEZ, which collects commercial & industrial (C&I) and construction & demolitian (C&D) waste in the Adelaide region;
  • ResourceCo, which recovers resources from C&I and C&D wastes; and
  • Adelaide Brighton Cement, which was seeking more environmentally sustainable solutions for energy supply to its cement kilns.
     

The SUEZ-ResourceCo partnership enabled the development of the alternative fuels facility which produces Process Engineered Fuel (PEF) to Adelaide Brighton Cement's specifications from C&D and C&I wastes.

  • Following intitial shredding, small aggregates and sand are screened out for recycling into road base materials.
  • Contaminents are removed by hand sorting (for steel, concrete, and masonry), belt magnets (residual tramp metal, and a water bath (for residual sand, grit, glass and metal).  Where possible, these items are recycled.
  • The remaining materials are processed further to create PEF, with the process being flexible enought to incorporate additional stages of screening and size reduction to alter the final density and composition of the PEF.
    SUEZ is in discussions with government and regulatory bodies to develop supportive regulatory regimes in each State; and negotiations of off-take agreements for PEF with businesses such as cement manufacturers and power station operators.
