Garden organics facility opens at Macarthur

Friday, 27 June, 2008


WSN Environmental Solutions has reached a milestone in the rollout of its Macarthur Resource Recovery Park, with the Ecolibrium garden organics facility starting commissioning this week.

The garden organics facility uses a tunnel composting process that fast-tracks decomposition and is designed to process 30,000 tons of organics, including lawn clippings and tree branches, to produce a range of high-grade end products.

The end products include compost fines, coarse mulch and soil conditioners. Different formulations can be produced for landscaping, home gardening and commercial and agricultural markets.

WSN Environmental Solutions CEO Ken Kanofski said the opening of the garden organics facility is a significant step in the rollout of the Macarthur Resource Recovery Park.

“The facility is capable of producing 18,000 tons of high-grade compost and mulch each year," Kanofski said.

“The recycled organic products that result from this facility can provide a natural alternative to using virgin soils, which are increasingly in short supply in the Sydney basin.”

The alternative waste technology (AWT) facility for household waste at WSN Macarthur Resource Recovery Park will start commissioning in July 2008. The plant will go through a nine-month commissioning period and is expected to be fully operational in March 2009.
