SYDNEY, Feb. 7, 2019 (Local News) -The owner of Victoria’s biggest paper mill has announced it will team up with waste giant Suez to build a huge energy plant powered by hundreds of thousands of tonnes of household rubbish.

Australian Paper’s proposed waste-to-energy plant at Maryvale in the Latrobe Valley would burn an estimated 650,000 tonnes a year of rubbish from Melbourne and Gippsland.

The company is one of Victoria’s biggest natural gas users, consuming about 8 per cent of the state’s industrial gas, and estimates it could cut its gas usage by about 60 per cent if the $600 million plant is built.
