ResourceCo is committed to sustainable outcomes and has a strong history of delivering a broad range of environmental solutions including recycling, resource recovery, the manufacture of alternative fuels and carbon abatement credits that add value for both customers and the communities in which it operates.
As a natural extension of ResourceCo’s core environmental and recycling platforms, we have developed a strong presence in Australia’s transition to a new carbon economy, delivering carbon abatement solutions for end use by Australian businesses.
ResourceCo, through its partnership with SUEZ Australia, as Australia’s leading manufacturer of Alternative Fuel, provided carbon abatement under the Australian Federal Government’s Department of Climate Change, Greenhouse Friendly™ carbon abatement program.
The unique recycling process creates a definable carbon benefit through the avoidance of the disposal of material to landfill and prevents the subsequent creation of harmful methane gasses.
Based on current production levels, use of ResourceCo fuels has been independently calculated to avoid over 370,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per annum. This is the equivalent of taking over 75,000 cars off the road. This is achieved both by avoiding methane emissions from organic matter that would have been deposited in landfill, and by replacing fossil fuels used for heat or electricity.
ResourceCo continues to work with its key partners and customers to find opportunities to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and has made significant investment in a range of direct carbon abatement activities including avoided deforestation carbon projects and designated carbon sinks using existing forestry assets.
