Aquacell receives official approval from Queensland Government
Water recycling company Aquacell has received Chief Executive approval from the Queensland Department of Infrastructure and Planning to build and operate greywater recycling plants for commercial and government projects in Queensland.

According to Aquacell's CEO Colin Fisher, his company is one of the first to receive approval for greywater recycling plants under a Queensland Government scheme that was originally introduced 18 months ago.

"We are really pleased to get the nod of approval from the Queensland Government and applaud them for introducing this accreditation scheme. It means that our greywater recycling plants are pre-approved for commercial projects throughout the state," said Fisher.

The new legislation requires all commercial buildings in Queensland which use over 5,000 litres per day to include an alternative source of water like greywater recycling or rain water harvesting.

"In fact, we've already completed our first project under the scheme in a new retirement community near Rockhampton. We were able to install this project with testing approval from the Queensland Government and have since received the full Chief Executive approval," added Fisher.

The project is one of the first commercial-sized greywater plants that is operational in Queensland and has been made possible under the new legislation.

Aquacell's focus is on non-potable (non-drinking) water for use in a variety of applications including surface irrigation, clothes washing and toilets. Aquacell's plants recycle greywater which is water discharged from showers, baths, basins and washing machines; and black water which is any water that has been contaminated with water discharged from a toilet.
