Clean water is an essential resource for paper manufacturing, and for renewable and low emission power generation at our Maryvale Mill.
Raw water is sourced from local resevoir, the Moondarra Dam, managed by local government authority Gippsland Water in Victoria.
Australian Paper aims to conserve water where possible by recycling and reusing water throughout the manufacturing proces.
Water testing is undertaken every year under EPA licence conditions at both mills to ensure water that is returned to the source meets the legislated requirements.
