AJ Bush biogas project announced as finalist in World Environment Day Awards

Long-time Wiley project partners, AJ Bush and Sons (Manufactures) PTY LTD (AJ Bush) have been announced as finalists in the Best Specific Environmental Initiative category of the United Nations Association of Australia World Environment Day Awards 2014.

AJ Bush and Wiley partnered on the shortlisted biogas recovery project undertaken at AJ Bush’s Beaudesert plant in Queensland. Wiley was engaged to construct a new Covered Anaerobic Lagoon (CAL) to capture the biogas produced during effluent treatment for use in firing an on-site boiler.

The project also covered the replacement of the site’s aging coal-fired boilers with two of the largest high efficiency fire tube boilers ever installed in Australia.
