Waste to energy

South Australia is recognised internationally for its leadership in resource recovery and renewable energy. Waste to energy brings these two areas together to provide economic development and environmental management opportunities that are new to South Australia.

The development of a South Australian Government position on waste to energy will provide more certainty for investment and help address community concerns. The Interim Consultation Position Paper on Waste to Energy (Interim Position Paper), in combination with the Waste to Energy Background Paper, provides a platform for Zero Waste SA to commence dialogue with stakeholders and other relevant Government agencies with the aim of developing and securing endorsement to formulate a State Government position on waste to energy.
