Qenos is Australia's exclusive manufacturer of polyethylene and a valued supplier of a diverse range of specialty polymers. Like SCE, Qenos is also committed to minimising the potential impacts of industry on people and the environment.
Qenos was looking for help to reduce the amount of waste generated from Qenos facilities that ends up as landfill.
After quickly setting R&D projects in motion, SCE was able to help Qenos improve efficiency, decrease pressure on resources, and design a solution and end of life alternative for its ash.
The ash has now been incorporated into our recycled roadbase material incorporating Electric Arc Furnace slag and Crushed fibre cement board and has been internationally acclaimed for both new product and technical merit.
This material blend has now been successfully used in many local and state road construction projects. By also working together across our own supply chain we were able to design an end-to-end transport solution to deliver the product more efficiently and safely, direct from Qenos silos to our recycling facilities over 2 hours away.
- Significantly reduced the waste and disposal cost for our customer.
- Turned thousands of tonnes of waste per year into a sustainable end of life innovative product.
- Saving our client hundreds of thousands of dollars annually
