Design to last, repair and recycle.

2. USE
Use products to create more value.

Recycle more resources.

  • 15 per cent reduction in total waste generation per capita between 2020 and 2030.

  • Divert 80 per cent of waste from landfill by 2030, with an interim target of 72 per cent by 2025.

  • Cut the volume of organic material going to landfill by 50 per cent between 2020 and 2030, with an interim target of 20 per cent reduction by 2025.

  • Divert 80 per cent of waste from landfill by 2030, with an interim target of 72 per cent by 2025.

  • 100 per cent of households have access to a separate food and organics recovery service or local composting by 2030.

  • 100% reduction of waste to landfill by 2030.

  • 644,000 MT waste diverted from landfill each year.

  • 26,000 MT organic waste diverted from landfill each year.

  • 438,000 MT increased resource recovery per year.

  • 292,000 MT organics removed from landfill through kerbside collection and processing.

Recycling Industry Strategic Plan

CER helping to create a safe, resilient & efficient recycling system

2. Increase quality of recycled materials.

3. Improve productivity of recycling sector.

4. Develop markets for recycled materials.

  • Educate the community about recycling.

  • Invest in recycling infrastructure to ensure market readiness of recycled products.

  • Collaborative procurement of recycling services.

  • Improve safety and amenity of resource recovery facilities.

  • Drive demand for recycled products through government procurement.

  • Educate the community and government about recycling.

  • Takes and processes all forms of waste with no further sorting or cleaning required.

  • Waste is recycled and reformed into value added export replacement products.

  • Investment will ensure a market ready supply of recycled economically viable products including but not limited to; metals, tyres, foam, glass,  plastics, clean base load electricity and potable water.

  • CER technology views waste as a resource.

  • The process is designed to harness the carbon content and ignore the thermal calorific value of the feed stock.

  • Waste is collected at the source and processes via the Metro Briquetting facilities.

  • Reduces garbage truck trips by 75% and utilises rail to shift the high-volume Briquettes to the regional WTCE Facility.

  • CER combine known proven technologies adhering to all Victorian/Australian Health and Safety regulations.

  • CER put a value on waste.

  • Anything that can be recycled is recycled for reuse. All other forms of waste are reformed into other valuable resources including clean base load electricity.

Renewable Energy Action Plan

CER creating renewable, affordable & reliable energy for all Victorians

Creating new jobs, investment & energy sector growth.

Action 1.

Setting & delivering on ambitious & achievable renewable energy targets.

Action 4.

Government leading the way.

Action 7.

Supporting investment in the new energies technologies sector.

Action 8.

Empowering households to take control of their energy use.

Action 9.

Ensuring a fair approach for all consumers.

Action 10.

Supporting local energy projects across Victoria.

  • A new Victorian low-cost energy project transforms all forms of waste to deliver renewable energy targets and efficiencies, by producing clean base-load renewable energy (electricity and natural gas).

  • Boost regional employment and upskill the community creating 300 to 400 hundred construction jobs.

  • 60 direct full-time jobs and hundreds of indirect roles when facility is operational.

  • A replicable, financially self- sustaining facility that builds economies, supports investment and reduces the burden of waste and associated environmental issues on the state and councils.

  • Supports regional development, leveraging skills in mature industries & capitalising on existing infrastructure.

  • Service and energy security for the community, industry and council, delivering significant cost savings.

  • Allows for flexibility in addressing the problems of waste collection through briquetting close to the point of garbage collection.

  • Households will feel empowered knowing their waste is being used to produce renewable clean based-load energy that will be used to drive their local community, industry and business.

  • Targeted regional centres in include; Geelong, Bendigo, LaTrobe Valley and Dandenong.

Empowering and engaging households, businesses and communities.

Action 11.

Improving processes for community renewable energy projects.

Action 14.

Encouraging more efficient investment in our energy system.

Action 15.

Stimulating and attracting new demand management services with community benefits.

Action 16.

Delivering a more flexible approach to grid connections.

Action 18.

Advocate to deliver secure, reliable and fairly priced gas for renewable energy generation.

Action 19.

Establishing the Centre for New Energy Technologies (C4NET).

Action 21.

Exploring innovative smart grid, microgrid and storage models.

Action 22.

Investing in emerging energy solutions.

  • Investment ready waste to energy technology that operates 24/7, that guarantees the supply of clean based-load electricity (especially for peak load and to prevent outages).

  • A sustainable, economical and modular sound waste processing model which can quickly and easily feed into the smart grid, microgrid and storage models.

  • Holistic view recycling all forms of waste (organics, municipal, solid, agricultural and industrial).

  • Quick, flexible and replicable waste and energy solution that is easy for councils and community to adopt.

  • Consistent quality of service and a reliable energy source for communities.

  • Provides energy securing and pricing stability.

  • An input of 600,000 metric tonnes per annum of FOGO waste will produce 43 million cubic metres of bio-gas with the potential of 37.5 Mega-Watt hours of renewable base-load energy generation.

  • Partnership with Deakin University to constantly refine and improve the existing technology to put Victoria on the map as a global waste to energy innovator.

  • A model circular economy with worldwide applications regardless of economic prosperity of the country.
