Energy from waste


The Energy from waste guideline (publication 1559) outlines how the Environment Protection Act and associated policies and Regulations are applied to the assessment of proposals that recover energy from waste (EfW).

The document provides high-level guidance for industry, government and the community on EPA’s expectations and requirements for the siting, design, construction and operation of such facilities. The guideline is consistent with the Victorian Government’s Getting full value: the Victorian Waste and Resource Recovery Policy.

This updated publication incorporates minor changes to reflect the new Scheduled Premises Regulations.
