Hi Quality waste to energy public consultation.

Hi-Quality publish details of public consultation

Following three online public consultations about its plans for the Eco-Hub site at Sunbury Rd, Hi-Quality has released a PDF answering questions from the public. You can download it here.

A total of 79 people attended its sessions, with approximately 37 asking questions.

The firm states its proposed EfW (energy from waste) facility is expected to operate for 8,000 hours a year.

“The proposed facility would adhere to any operational requirements for the times of day it’s operating to prevent and minimise any potential impact to the community,” states the firm.

The proposed EfW facility will include a stack (chimney). The stack is expected to be about 60 metres tall, and would be located behind the facility, approximately 700 metres back from Sunbury Rd. The final stack height will be determined by air quality modelling and requires approval from EPA Victoria.

The firm also states that vapour (flue gas) released by the facility will adhere to the EPA’s conditions of approval and “…be well within EU best practice emissions”. It will be monitored whenever the plant is operating, states Hi-Quality.
