Project Overview

A self-contained MWR plant was installed and operated at Flemington racecourse (Melbourne) to demonstrate the sewer mining and water purification processes, and to assess it under full-scale technical and commercial parameters. Extracted water is treated to Class A reclaimed water standard by the MWR treatment plant. The demonstration will establish operating costs, process characteristics and water quality achievable for the kind of wastewater feed available at Epson Road Main sewer. Further details will be added soon. In the meantime, the project report is currently available under the publications tab above.
