Australia – WtE Plant
Construction of a WtE plant
On 8th March, construction officially began on the site of a new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Kwinana, Perth, which will be operated by Veolia.
The facility will incorporate two full automated furnaces or lines and will recover energy from 400,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste each year. It will also recover recyclable materials that otherwise would have gone to landfill and convert residual ash into by-products such as bricks or road aggregate.

Construction of an US$800 million biofuel plant
The ECB Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Paraguayan government that will allow the company to continue its investment in the country.
As part of the agreement, a new complex known as Omega Green will be developed to house the first second-generation renewable fuels plant in the Southern Hemisphere. The facility will produce renewable diesel and kerosene for civil and military aviation from feedstock such as soybean or cooking oil.
