Organic residuals recycling company Bettergrow, has invested $10 million in CDEnviro hydro excavation technology.
The investment marks an expansion of Bettergrow’s non-destructive digging waste facility in Wetherill Park NSW.
Bettergrow Operations Director Neale Hogarth said the company was excited to increase its capacity to divert and re-use non-destructive digging muds.
“We have worked with CDEnviro for years now, and have partnered with them on this project to ensure the highest level of technology for our customers,” Mr Hogarth said.
“The facility is going to be huge, but that’s because we know the potential for waste to become a resource is huge.”
According to Mr Hogarth, the facility will showcase some of the most innovative technology in the industry, including the CDEnviro HYDRO:TIP.
The HYDRO:TIP is a patent-pending tipping station for vacuum tanker muds and other solid liquid wastes.
“The large-scale investment is our third investment in CDEnviro equipment since 2016,” Mr Hogarth said.
“Bettergrow customers that use this facility will benefit from significant cost savings on both transport and landfill.”
Bettergrow owner Neil Schembri said the facility demonstrates the company’s commitment to the circular economy.
“The large-scale recycling facility at Wetherill Park will enable Bettergrow to not only process larger volumes of drilling muds than ever before, but also process a range of other complex and highly contaminated wastes,” Mr Schembri said.
“The next stage of development for the NSW site will be receiving food waste and other organics. We will again be working with CDEnviro to determine the most appropriate technology for these resources.”
