During FY19 there was a decrease in hazardous waste. AGL Torrens had a 12% increase in hazardous waste recycled. The increase in non-hazardous waste recycled is due to the inclusion of produced water at the Camden Gas Project sent off-site for recycling. The decrease in non-hazardous waste disposed is due to a reduction in total coal ash disposal at AGL Loy Yang.
AGL Loy Yang manages the disposal of its own flyash (non-hazardous waste) as well as the fly ash produced by the neighbouring Loy Yang B power station. Figures reported above include two-thirds of the amount of fly ash disposed by AGL Loy Yang, which is the best estimate of the proportion of fly ash originating from AGL’s power generation activities at Loy Yang.
FY15 data includes AGL Macquarie from September 2014.
