Black Rock odour

An odour was released from the biosolids plant at Black Rock on Thursday afternoon.

A shutdown of a plant process triggered the automatic emergency release.

The odour was not harmful and dissipated within a few hours.

The incident will be investigated by the plant operator.

Officially opened in January 2013, the thermal drying plant produces small biosolids pellets suitable for use as fertiliser.

The facility was built by Plenary Group and is operated by Water Infrastructure Group as a public-private partnership.
