Aqua to commission waste water treatment plant at Northgate, Brisbane
Aqua set to recruit more staff, including plant operators, engineers, contract managers
Growth opportunities for waste water usage and disposal in the F&B sector
It’s been a busy time for REMONDIS Aqua since launching in Australia in 2019 – recently securing two big Queensland contracts in the transport and local government sectors.
Commercial waste water treatment plant for Brisbane
REMONDIS Aqua is now preparing to commission its first commercial waste water treatment plant in Brisbane at REMONDIS’ existing waste transfer station in Northgate, with operations scheduled to commence this financial year.
The recent investment in the new plant will complement REMONDIS’ existing activities. The plant’s installation means there will be a much-needed new hub for waste water treatment in South East Queensland.
When operational, the commercial waste water treatment plant will be configured to treat standard commercial waste waters, with scope for growth into other more complex categories of commercial and industrial waste waters in the future.
The plant will initially only be available for REMONDIS operations but is licenced to accept third party liquid waste. REMONDIS Aqua envisages moving towards such arrangements in the second half of 2022.
The proximity of the facility to Brisbane’s trade coast industrial area and key transport corridors positions the venture as an alternative to existing waste water disposal points on the city fringe. It will offer the market greater convenience and choice and reduce the need for extended transport, bringing down operational costs.
The latest waste-water endeavour will see REMONDIS Aqua recruit a range of additional staff, including water treatment operators, engineers and contract managers.
Reflecting on entering the commercial waste-water treatment space, REMONDIS Aqua Director Sebastian Weil said the Northgate facility would significantly advance the business footprint in South East Queensland.
“This is about adding a new dynamic to market-leading liquid waste treatment, with a focus on boosting cost and time efficiencies for our customers,” Weil said.
“Being able to take advantage of the existing REMONDIS infrastructure and in-house technological expertise means our facility will avoid issues such as odour and wet weather access, which hamper other waste water disposal points.
“Our technological excellence across different industries will enable us to recover valuable resources from multiple streams of industrial and commercial waste-waters, lifting recycling and future circular economy opportunities.’’
The new project follows REMONDIS Aqua securing key Queensland contracts with rail logistics giant Aurizon and Gladstone Regional Council. Under those arrangements REMONDIS Aqua is servicing and maintaining Aurizon’s sewage and pollution treatment plants at Toowoomba, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Bowen and Townsville. Meanwhile, REMONDIS Aqua is operating and maintaining two waste water treatment plants for Gladstone Regional Council, including the operation and maintenance of a water recycling plant to produce recycled water for vehicle washing.
Opportunities in F&B sector
In a separate development, REMONDIS Aqua has been examining opportunities within the Australian food and beverage sector, having identified multiple areas where its specialised services can be utilised. With water usage and waste water disposal being key issues across the sector, Sebastian Weil said he and his team were sounding out sector leaders, canvassing ideas around cost and emission efficiency.
“Given today’s onus on big business to embrace and display social and environmental responsibility, we think we’re close to a series of breakthrough offerings amongst some big names in the Australian food and beverage sector,” Weil said.
“Although much of what we’re doing is commercial in confidence at this stage, we can say we’ve made promising progress exchanging ideas on ways forward.
“Much of what we’re proposing is based on our experiences overseas, where we play a leading role helping foremost players in the production industries to find operational efficiencies. This is usually through the introduction of REMONDIS technology involving waste water treatment, recycled water, anerobic digestion and biogas utilisation.
“We have every confidence we can introduce these technologies to the Australian market in partnership with local operators.’’
