AJ Bush & Sons (Manufacturers) Pty Ltd has won the ‘Business Eco-efficiency Award’ at the Premier’s Sustainability Awards held recently.
The Business Eco-efficiency Award is granted to a ‘business for outstanding performance in improving its operational efficiency by applying environmentally beneficial processes, systems or practices’.
AJ Bush and Sons operates one of the most advanced, state-of-the-art manufacturing plants for meat by-products in Australasia, processing over 800 tonnes of animal by-products daily. The plant is 100% Australian owned and operated by the Bush family.
Wiley is working closely with AJ Bush to design, engineer and implement a recovery system, which directs the waste water from the rendering process to a number of covered anaerobic ponds. Biogas is captured and used as an alternative fuel source to produce electricity and steam for the factory.
