Long-term clients of Wiley—AJ Bush & Sons (Manufacturers) Pty Ltd—have won the "Business Eco-efficiency Award" at the Premier’s Sustainability Awards held on Friday 14th June.

The Business Eco-efficiency Award is granted to a “business for outstanding performance in improving its operational efficiency by applying environmentally beneficial processes, systems or practices.”

AJ Bush and Sons operates the most advanced, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant for meat by-products in Australasia. The plant processes over 800 tonnes of animal by-products daily and remains 100% Australian owned and operated by the Bush Family.

Wiley is working closely with AJ Bush to design, engineer and implement a recovery system which directs the waste water from the rendering process to a number of covered anaerobic ponds.  From here, biogas is captured and used as an alternative fuel source to produce electricity and steam for the factory.
