Stage One of the $500 million Energy from Waste facility is expected to reduce Victoria's net CO2 emissions by an estimated 270,000 tonnes annually. This new technology will create energy from the controlled combustion of non-hazardous waste materials that would otherwise go to landfill. The project will support Maryvale's 850 local jobs and create a further 500 jobs through the three-year construction and 455 ongoing jobs on completion.
