Join us at the first Gippsland Leaders’ Edge Lunch for 2018. Find out how Australian Paper has turned one of its challenges to stabilise energy costs into a bold new project. Hear from our expert speakers as they discuss the Energy from Waste (EfW) feasibility study which has the potential to transform Australian Paper’s Maryvale Mill into a EfW and creating more than 1,600 new Victorian jobs. How the project with contributions from Federal and State government has the potential to divert about 650,000 tonnes of waste from landfill in south east Melbourne and Gippsland each year, saving 500,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
Australian Paper in Maryvale also produces 600,000 tonnes of a lignin based by product from the wood processed to make paper. Find out how they have developed a process to create new generation bio-products such as plastic substitutes, carbon fibre and bio fuel. This new growth opportunity is part of a sustainable growth strategy to move the business into the next generation.
Come along to the Gippsland Leaders’ Edge Lunch to hear of the strategy and development from a major business in the region.
