    Kwinana Waste to Energy Plant

    The Kwinana Waste to Energy facility will be the first of its kind in Australia, integrating the recovery and reuse of waste with the generation of energy to provide a practical solution to two community challenges: waste disposal and renewable energy supply.

    The facility will contribute to landfill reduction by processing 400,000 tonnes of waste every year, equivalent to one quarter of Perth’s post-recycling rubbish. This processing will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 400,000 tonnes annually.

    The facility will also generate and export 36MW of green electricity to the local grid every year, sufficient to power more than 50,000 households.


    General information

    Location: Kwinana Industrial Area 40km south of Perth, WA

     Contract Type: ACCIONA will engineer, procure and construct the facility, with the 36-month construction period commencing in October.
