SUEZ-ResourceCo Recovery Facility

Wilkins Road, Wingfield SA 5013
13 13 35



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) as a replacement for fossil fuels to Adelaide Brighton Cement's specifications from C&D and C&I wastes. The fully automated SUEZ-ResourceCo plant in South Australia plant sorts the entire raw material stream into its various components. The process separates all raw materials and over 90% of the material is recycled.

  • Following initial shredding, small aggregates and sand are screened out for recycling into road base materials.
  • Contaminants 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 enough to incorporate additional stages of screening and size reduction to alter the final density and composition of the PEF.

The PEF produced by SUEZ-ResourceCo possesses significant calorific value and can be used as a fuel substitute for coal and gas in high combustion facilities.

SUEZ-ResourceCo's Wingfield facility has the capability to manufacture up to 350,000 tonnes of raw material per annum into approximately 100,000 to 150,000 tonnes of PEF: the first and only one of its kind in Australia.
