Wiley has been commissioned by long-term clients JBS Australia to project manage the upgrade of their waste water treatment system.
JBS Australia is a leading Australian producer of meat products. The two companies have worked together on environmentally innovative projects including JBS’ revolutionary salt water hide processing plant, which was awarded the Master Builders Association Brisbane Award for Innovation in Environmental Management in 2010.
The latest project involves the design, construction and installation of new pre-treatment equipment and covered anaerobic lagoon technology, which is expected to reduce JBS’ carbon tax bill as soon as the lagoons are covered.
The project scope covers a new 20 Megalitre anaerobic pond, a biomethane gas recovery system from new and existing ponds, integration of biomethane gas as fuel for the existing gas fired boiler, a red waste stream dissolved air flotation system replacement, a system for tallow recovery, and modifications to the existing trade waste system.
Tom Wiley, Managing Director says that Wiley supports JBS’ ongoing commitment to environmental innovation. Currently in the construction phase, the project is expected to be completed by March 2014.
