MORWELL, Australia, Aug. 1, 2018 (Local News) -About 80 community members attended a community forum hosted by the Environment Protection Authority in Traralgon on Thursday night to discuss Australian Paper's proposed Energy from Waste project.

If approved, the project would convert municipal waste into an alternative energy source for the company's Maryvale Mill.

The state and federal governments are contributing to the $7.5 million feasibility study for the project, which is projected to divert about 650,000 tonnes of waste from landfill in south east Melbourne and Gippsland and turn it into energy.
