Veolia Water Technologies, in partnership with Urban Utilities, was awarded the Infrastructure Project Innovation. Award (Metro) at the Queensland Water Awards for Australia's First Full Scale ANITA™ Mox Facility. Organized by the Australian Water Association, the Awards recognises the contribution of the association members for their inspiring leadership and innovative research, programs, and projects. Veolia Water Technologies and Urban Utilities, with support from the University of Queensland and infrastructure company Fulton Hogan, received the award for successfully delivering Australia’s first municipal full-scale anammox process in Brisbane.
As a result, a large amount of anammox culture is now available to be utilised for more anammox installations across the country. This achievement is a significant milestone for the Australian water industry and a giant leap toward zero energy wastewater treatment.
“The success of our anammox biofarm and ANITA™ Mox process could be a catalyst to transform wastewater
treatment operations in Australia,” said Karen Shaw, Municipal Client Manager at Veolia Water Technologies. “With this, plant operators can cut energy costs, increase treatment capacity at their plants, and benefit the environment at the same time.”
Winners of the Queensland Water Awards will go on to represent the state in the national Australian Water Awards, which will be presented at the Association’s annual water conference and exhibition, Ozwater’22, in May 2022.
