Gypsum spreading trials

Feb 12, 2010   //   by admin   //   Agricultural Gypsum  //  No Comments

ReGyp undertook spreader trials using the Super Ag 10mm screened gypsum product near Cowra NSW.

The results off the spreader are substantial, with the Regyp gypsum spreading up to 19m (average 17-19), with various NSW mined gypsum products only achieving 11-13m off the same spreader.

This increased spreading distance would equate to approximately $10 per tonne savings through reduced spreading costs.

Know your C&D waste responsibilities

Apr 29, 2009   //   by admin   //   C&D Waste  //  No Comments

Did you know that both the owner of the waste and the transporter are legally responsible for proving the waste was transported to a lawful place? The owner of the waste and the transporter are each guilty of an offence when waste is transported to a place that cannot lawfully be used as a waste facility.

“if it sounds too good to be true it generally is” and if the price of disposal and/or recycling is significantly lower than their competitors their is a big chance that they are not adhering to the POEO act and EPA and DECC regulations.

The maximum penalty for supplying false or misleading information about waste is $250,000.

Waste avoidance and resource recovery

Apr 20, 2009   //   by admin   //   Industrial Gypsum  //  No Comments

The NSW Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Report (WARR) 2008, stated that by increasing the cost of disposal of each tonne of waste, the expanded levy provides an incentive to provide recycling and resource recovery solutions. The levy will also provide revenue which will be used to fund new or expanded environmental programs in NSW.

C&D waste

The report also stated that:

  • Construction and demolition waste increased 15% from 2003 to 2004 and 3% from 2005 to 2007,
  • In 2006-07, Sydney recycled 54% of its waste, up from 49% recycled in 2004-05. The rest (4.52 million tonnes) mainly went to landfill. Construction and demolition waste recycling increased from up 4% to 70%,
  • NSW as a whole, 52% of total waste was recycled in 2006-07, up from 46% in 2004-05. In 2006-07, 67% of construction and demolition waste was recycled.  C&D waste recycled in NSW  increased 1.1 million tonnes or 6% since 2004-05.

C&D waste composition

Apr 19, 2009   //   by admin   //   C&D Waste  //  No Comments

In 2004 NSW DECC also undertook studies to estimate the the quantities and composition of mixed C&D waste disposed at Sydney landfills. Plasterboard waste was estimated to be around 4 percent of the total C&D waste stream with an expected tonnage range of between 10,000 and 25,000 tonnes per annum. The DECC testing called anything under 4.75mm aggregate where it was estimated the plasterboard component was over 10%.

C&D waste composition

The QLD government undertook studies in 2002 to ascertain the amount of plasterboard waste in the construction and demolition (C&D) waste stream. The percentage of waste will vary significantly depending on the building being constructed or demolished but the average composition of demolition waste is shown below.

C&D waste composition

In Melbourne, trials by Fletcher Constructions on two commercial building sites found plasterboard represented 20 percent of the site waste generated. McDonald, B. Recon: Waste Minimisation and Recycling Program, Fletcher Construction Australia Pty Ltd, 1994.

Studies in North America have shown that whereas plasterboard makes up less than 1 percent of the total waste stream, it comprises in excess of 15 percent of C&D waste. Hede, D. Construction and Demolition Waste and Site Contamination, Construction and Demolition Waste Conference .97, Brisbane, April 1997.
