Melbourne environmentally friendly plant shipped overseas

Wednesday, 17 January, 2007

Melbourne based environmental technology company Ozmotech has announced the successful pre-commissioning of its latest ThermoFuel plant. The 20 tonne per day waste plastics to diesel system was erected and operated on a site in Laverton, Victoria.

While the system is slated for delivery to a client in the UK, during the 6-week commissioning period Ozmotech ran a series of confirmation tests on a range of system operations including fuel specification and air emissions.

Ozmotech CEO Garry Baker said he couldn't be happier with the results.

"From the first day of full production, laboratory tests on the fuel showed that the fuel was 98% compliant with EN590 standards, and just a small amount of "˜tweaking' of the system delivered 100% compliant diesel from a range of locally sourced waste plastic feedstocks," Baker said.

Baker was equally pleased with the results of the stack emissions tests.

"The laboratory report showed that the emissions from the operation of the plant itself are extremely low, and well below every international EPA requirement that we know of. There isn't a country or state in the world where this plant cannot operate," Barker said.

The plant is now being dismantled for shipment to the client's facilities in Ireland, and is the first of a seven plant order.
