Waste Management Capability & Experience


Worley has established a reputation for providing innovative, cost-effective and long-term environmental engineering solutions to waste managementproblems ranging from non-hazardous industrial, municipal and mining waste to highly hazardous or problematic waste.
We are the right choice for your integrated waste management and offer:
• A flexible, phased approach developed at the start of projects to reduce up-front costs and project uncertainty related to waste management.
• Regional waste specialists who are knowledgable of up to date regulatory requirements and compliance issues, supported by our global waste practice experts.
• Comprehensive project support by an international team that is fully integrated across disciplines and accurate interfacing and compatibility between industrial facility systems
to save time and avoid costly re-work.
• Waste specialists with a broad knowledge of all commercial waste-to-energy technologies allowing customers to make informed decisions regarding various options for
power development.
• Close cooperation between technical design and environmental management. This reduces the risk of incompatible technical design and environmental requirements
and allows for efficient and cost-effective management of the environmental and permitting demands.
• Industry-leading insight into project risk identification and mitigation analysis to increase certainty of critical decision making points that impact project performance,
schedule, and financing viability.
• Senior waste engineers and scientists that can provide state-of-the-art designs for waste management facilities through the inputs provided by teams of experts in
geotechnical and civil engineering, geophysics, hydrogeology, hydrology, soil science, and geochemistry.

Integrated waste management
Worley delivers complete life cycle integrated waste management solutions, beginning with a waste management options analysis and waste facility siting, design, and regulatory licensing. Our engineers provide the engineering, procurement and construction supervision for:
• Commercial (hazardous or non-hazardous), municipal and industrial landfills, temporary strorage and waste handling areas, and transfer facilities.
• Water-wastewater treatment facilities
• Solid waste treatment and composting facilities
• Water recycling facilities
• Mine waste dumps
• Early conceptual studies - providing advice to organizations for the right selection and understanding of the issues that they face with waste management
Our waste management programs include human and ecological risk assessment, risk modelling, and environmental monitoring of soil, groundwater, and surface water near
waste handling and disposal sites. We excel in the establishment, operations enhancement, site remediation, and facility decommissioning, and in the delineation and assessment of
abandoned or damaged landfills.
