Australian Paper releases energy plant feasibility study
A feasibility study into a Energy from Waste plant at the Maryvale Mill has been released by Australian Paper and its joint partner Suez.
The next step on the five-year path to fruition is gaining environmental approval.
The Member for Gippsland Darren Chester describes it as “the most exciting job creating-proposal in the Latrobe Valley for decades.”
Mr Chester spoke at yesterday’s launch of the feasibility study which he says can help solve Melbourne’s waste disposal problems, while creating a long-term energy solution for the mill which currently employs more than 800 people.
“The three most important issues in the Latrobe Valley today are jobs, jobs, jobs,” Mr Chester told the launch in Melbourne.
