Veolia – MBT Woodlawn Project achieves completion 6 months ahead of program.
February 24, 2017
Congratulations to the Lipman project team, consultants and subcontractors for the huge effort to complete more than 6 months ahead of schedule. A well calculated construction strategy avoided enduring two cold winters in Goulburn, all agreeing that one cold winter was enough to manage.
The project was to design, construct and commission a new waste disposal facility to convert general solid waste into compost.
The site was once the Woodlawn Open Cut Mine which produced zinc, lead and copper ore until 1998.
Veolia were granted approval to use the Woodlawn mine site as a waste disposal to rehabilitate the property for agricultural use. To achieve this the MBT facility was designed to convert (upon completion of stage 2) 200,000 tonnes of general solid waste into 40,000 tonnes of compost each year to be used as clean fill material.
