GRANT FOR REDEVELOPMENT
In 2015, Doyle Bros was awarded a grant from the New South Wales EPA Trust as part of the New South Wales Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative. This grant allowed us to upgrade and improve the Lab, bringing us to a point where more than 90% of all material we collect is recovered, recycled and reused.
It also allowed us to develop a facility that can produce Processed Engineered Fuel (PEF), converting the residual waste from the Lab that was previously going to landfill into an alternative energy source. PEF is a great step towards the reduction of fossil fuel use and harmful landfill emissions. We are proud to be the only manufacturer of PEF in New South Wales.
Manufacturing Processed Engineered Fuel
Our PEF is comprised of residual material left over as a result of our sorting process. Those materials are converted into PEF through the following process
- Shredding the material to less than 40mm;
- Compacting the material into 1 tonne bales; and
- Wrapping the bales in plastic film for transportation, to prevent any materials from escaping during transportation.
The PEF we manufacture is now supplied for use in cement kilns in Adelaide and Malaysia, as a partial replacement for coal.
