Fulton Hogan have submitted a development licence application (APP004114) to Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA). Fulton Hogan propose to construct a reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) plant at 220 Heales Road, Lara, adjacent to their existing asphalt batching plant. The construction of the RAP plant would allow current RAP operations at North Shore to be relocated to the premises to deliver an efficient asphalt recycling and batching process at Lara.

What does the application propose?

Fulton Hogan is proposing to accept and process the following materials to the premises:

  • RAP and crushed rock (Industrial Waste - Y140), approximately 75,000 tonnes per year, collected from Fulton Hogan and South Western Alliance road works. The RAP would be crushed screened and blended using mobile crusher and screener, then exported to Fulton Hogan’s asphalt batching plant. The crushed rock would be on sold to third parties.
  • Recycled glass (Industrial Waste – Z100), less than 10,000 tonnes per year, collected from local council kerbside recycling programs. The recycled glass would be pulverised in an enclosed shed to glass fines and exported to Fulton Hogan’s asphalt batching plant for use as sand.
  • Recycled concrete (Industrial Waste – Y100), approximately 5,000 tonnes per year, returned virgin concrete from agitator trucks, and footpath slabs. The recycled concrete would be processed (crushed) on site for reuse on Fulton Hogan Civil Projects as a recycled material
  • Steel slag, approximately 15,000 tonnes per year, purchased for Infrabuilds’ Laverton steel mill. The steel slag would be crushed and screened then exported to Fulton Hogan’s asphalt batching plant for blending,

The proposed activity is scheduled under the Environment Protection Regulations 2021 as H05c (Glass works – small reprocessing) and A13b (Waste and resource recovery – medium). Activity A13b is a prescribed development activity. This application was submitted to EPA to issue a development licence which allows the prescribed development activity.

It is noted that an application for a planning permit for the proposed RAP plant was made to the City of Greater Geelong on 27 August 2021.
