new FOGO composting facility

Working towards mechanical completion in Melbourne.We’re making good progress at SACYR’s new FOGO composting facility in Dandenong South.

Almost all shipments have arrived and everything is on track to reach an important milestone in April – Mechanical completion. After that we can commence with dry and wet commissioning and have this plant up and running!

WTT was contracted in 2017 by SACYR to engineer, construct and commission the biological technology package for a 120,000 tonnes per year In-Vessel Composting (IVC) facility. The plant is designed to process a mixture of Food and Garden Organics (Green + FoGo). WTT’s scope of works comprises, 12 IVC tunnels and the complete facility air and water treatment systems. All aspects are controlled and monitored through WTT’s fully automated SCADA system.  This ensures the composting system meets Australian Standards and EPA requirements. Each tunnel batch will be pasteurized killing pathogens, seeds and weeds before the material is transferred to the maturation area.
