Australia s growing polymer market that are critical to future growth and. The world class quality of Qenos prosperity We make products that. Qenos Products,During the past 15 years,Qenos products have become. vital in water conservation,infrastructure efficiency and food. packaging integrity, Polyethylene is increasingly used in products that contribute. to efficiency in industry agriculture and domestic settings The. fundamental attribute of polyethylene is its ability to make a. fit for use product that has a lower environmental footprint. and across the supply chain provides a lower total cost. compared to alternatives,Water Conservation, Qenos has been the major driver in the use of polyethylene for water storage tanks. both in rural and domestic environments An estimated 395 000 polyethylene. tanks average capacity 5 000 litres are produced annually with the potential to. capture in excess of 28 000 million litres of rainwater per year making a significant. contribution to water conservation in Australia Water tanks manufactured in. the last five years can harvest approximately 120 days of Melbourne s daily water. supply or 90 days in Sydney each year,Industrial Pipe.
Polyethylene is used extensively in industrial pipe production for applications in the. mining gas and water sectors The combination of water savings via elimination of. evaporation loss lightweight and higher transport efficiency and longer operational. life has significantly reduced the environmental footprint when compared to. traditional materials such as iron and concrete,Food Integrity. The wide use of polyethylene in films and bottles has enhanced the integrity of. food products in transport on the shelf and in the home Qenos continues to. improve and develop new products that will enable our customers to achieve their. product integrity goals using less polyethylene materials. Over many years Qenos has worked with our customers to enable our polyethylene. product to be supplied in refillable shipping containers 18 tonnes instead of. palletised 25 kg bags This has reduced the packaging materials required and. transport costs and has alleviated environmental safety and waste concerns. Qenos has been a signatory of the National Packaging Covenant since 2001. and works with our customers on elements of their packaging design including. material selection and optimisation Many elements are considered such as the. required product technical attributes optimising processing conditions and. minimising generation of waste,At Qenos we,believe all injuries. are preventable,Health and Safety,Qenos uses an integrated Safety Health and. Environment Management System to manage all Injury Rate. aspects of safety health and environment,As an operator of Major Hazard Facilities Qenos. has a comprehensive risk management process that 1 5. involves our workforce in identifying and assessing. workplace risks Our program of risk controls uses 1 0. a hierarchy to eliminate risks from the workplace, where practical and to have a safe system of work 0 5.

Performance goals are set for all aspects of health and. safety and key performance indicators are used to,steward performance A systematic safety committee. structure and briefing process keeps all our workforce. abreast of safety issues and provides an avenue for. employees to raise concerns about health and safety.

efficiency in our production processes and in,the application of our finished products. Resource Efficiency, Qenos continues to significantly reduce pressure on. Australia s resources Since 2005 water consumption. has been cut by 25 per cent trade waste generation. has been reduced by 34 per cent and manufacturing,wastes and emissions have decreased. Mains Water Use, Qenos facilities use substantial quantities of water in the A City West Water project to provide recycled water from the. manufacturing process The two main uses are for cooling Altona sewerage treatment plant to Qenos and local parks. water approximately 50 per cent of water use and steam and golf courses is scheduled for completion at the end of. generation approximately 40 per cent of water use The 2010 Also co funded by the Victorian Government when. balance is consumed by minor process uses or as mains fully commissioned this project will supply the Qenos Altona. water facilities with up to 2 000 ML of water per year. Our strategy is to reduce mains water use in three ways The charts show the five year trend of decreasing mains. water use and increasing efficiency,1 Using water efficiently.
2 On site recycling of water, 3 Substitution of mains water with alternative water. Since 2005 Qenos has reduced water consumption by 25. per cent from 6037 million litres ML to 4476 ML This has. been achieved through efficiency projects water re use plant. shutdowns and alternative water supplies, Treated groundwater from the Orica groundwater treatment. plant is being used as a substitute supply at the Qenos Botany. facilities and in 2009 456 ML of treated groundwater was. used displacing mains water,At Altona 156 ML of water was reused after onsite. treatment A further project to recycle water at our Altona. plant was commissioned in 2009 and is being capacity<.
