Our Environmental Focus

Our EnvironmentAL Focus

A characteristic of the partnerships Ace Waste has forged with its clients is the help our Company provides to combating climate change – one of the most important environmental issues facing us all today.

The guiding influence on this philosophy is Ace Waste’s Environmental Management System (EMS) which sets strict limits on the environmental impacts of our activities.

Ace Waste’s facilities are the only waste disposal facility continuously (real time) monitored 24 hours per day by the Environmental Protection Agency and our Queensland facility has over 90,000 hours of incident free data.

Continuous monitoring covers temperatures and air flows at the various stages as well as combustion efficiency parameters (ie oxygen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide levels) and PH monitoring in the air pollution control system. The data provided to the Environmental Protection Agency is used by that authority to provide graphic records on the performance of the incinerator and used for comparison with Licence conditions.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY PLANS AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Ace Waste has made a commitment to the principles of sustainable development. This means adopting business strategies and activities that meet the needs of the company and its clients while protecting, supporting and enhancing the human and natural resources that will be needed in the future.

Ace Waste has two key goals:

  • To ensure our operations are more sustainable. This means making changes that reduce the impacts of our operations on the environment and community; and
  • To have an influence on the behaviour of others by building partnerships to help others adopt more sustainable practices.

CARBON CREDIT

The two most common disposal methods for the disposal of Clinical and Related Waste are High Temperature Incineration and Autoclaving/Landfilling. Ace Waste can demonstrate that High Temperature Incineration is a more environmentally friendly disposal process than Autoclaving/Landfilling. In fact Methane is 24 times more potent than CO2 as a GHG, and so 1 tonne of emitted Methane will be expressed as 24 tonnes of CO2e emitted.
