Nu-Rock’s Mt Piper Manufacturing Plant generates local excitement.
Lithgow NSW. Australia.
Nu-Rock Marketing Manager, Mike Retter, was interviewed by ABC Radio. The resultant editorial coverage focused on the positive impact a Nu-Rock Manufacturing facility will have on the local Lithgow area economy.
Abundance of ash to supply building industry at proposed Lithgow plant.
Lithgow NSW. Australia.
The company behind a proposed ash conversion plant near Lithgow says it would create at least 20 jobs in the region.
The City Council has received a development application for the facility which would convert coal-fired ash into building materials.
The company Nu-Rock said it wanted to build the plant at Mount Piper Power Station and would use the ash that was laying dormant on-site.
The spokesman Mike Retter said construction groups have expressed interest in using the product, and it would create employment.
“We’re looking at probably 16 to 20 workers, at least, and then flow-on effects at the local level will be equally important,” Mr Retter said.
“Products need to be moved in and out of the area, there will be some local businesses that will be called on to assist.“
Mr Retter said it would help shield the region from the impacts of any downturn in mining.
“The ash that we’ve got in New South Wales sitting [is] 550 million tonnes,” he said.
“Whether we stopped using electricity tomorrow that came from that source, this ash would still be there, so we could look at it as an opportunity, not a problem.
“In that opportunity what we’re saying is we can convert that ash, mind you that’s a lot of ash to convert, but there’s certainly an abundance of it.”
