Australia’s first biosolids gasification facility

Logan Water has pioneered an Australian first biosolids gasification facility. The facility transforms sewage sludge (biosolids) into renewable energy. It also produces a soil conditioner called biochar.

The Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) operated a trial biosolids gasification facility during 2020. A permanent facility will be constructed at the WWTP in 2021.

Research into the performance of the trial facility showed that Logan Water’s solution:

  • is heat-energy neutral
  • reduces the amount of biosolids for disposal by around 90%
  • eliminates about 95% of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) like polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and
  • reduces about 63% of micro and nano-plastics in biosolids.

The process does not harm the environment and the resulting biochar contains bio-available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Biochar also increases the water holding capacity of soil. This helps plants to germinate and grow in the hot Australian climate. This makes biochar suitable for reuse as a soil improver.

Logan Water will investigate commercial opportunities to market biochar in 2021. At present, biochar is not available for sale from Council.

If you have a question about this project, please email watercomms@logan.qld.gov.au.

Cedar Grove Environmental Centre

The Centre is open daily from 5.30am to 6:30pm. Please note that the gates to the Centre and carpark close at 6.30pm, please make sure you leave the Centre before this time.

Community members can visit the site to enjoy:

  • a 2.5km walking track (loop) along the Logan River
  • shaded seating and picnic tables
  • parking, accessible toilets and drinking fountain
  • viewing the Cedar Grove Landcare nursery and training facility (not yet operational).

Access to Cedar Grove Environmental Centre is from Cedar Grove road. There is a public carpark at the end of the access road. Dogs on a leash are allowed but there is no access for motorbikes, horses, fishing or camping.

For general enquiries, please call us on 07 3412 3412.

Community Reference Group Minutes

A Community Reference Group operated during the detailed design and construction phases of the project. 

Chambers Flat wastewater treatment plant

A new wastewater treatment facility is needed to service development in the Park Ridge, Logan Village and Yarrabilba areas in the coming years.

The planned facility currently known as the Chambers Flat wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) will ultimately be constructed on part of a 144 hectare site at Pleasant View Road, Chambers Flat.

Current status

Following community consultation and technical investigations, Council acquired land at Pleasant View Road, Chambers Flat in September 2020 for the purposes of building a modern WWTP. This followed approval by the Minister of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

There is no construction timeframe for the WWTP or connecting pipelines, but they may be required after 2024 (depending on population growth).

Community Reference Group

Council’s Logan Water invites members of the Chambers Flat community to participate in a Community Reference Group for the proposed Chambers Flat WWTP site.

The purpose of the Community Reference Group will be to:

  • enhance communication between Council and community members affected by the project
  • increase our understanding of community feedback about wastewater management and the development of the Chambers Flat WWTP and connecting trunk infrastructure
  • maximise opportunities for the community and environment as part of the project. For example, the Community Reference Group may be involved in preparing a master plan for the site to accommodate the WWTP as well as community, environmental and / or other uses.

You can download the Chambers Flat WWTP Community Reference Group Terms of Reference (PDF 637 KB) along with a Community Reference Group nomination form (PDF 136 KB).

Please complete and return the nomination form by 30 September 2021 to watercomms@logan.qld.gov.au or post to Tania Keelan, Community Engagement Officer, Logan Water, PO Box 1183, Beenleigh Qld 4207.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact Tania Keelan on 07 2899 7457, 0439 736 313 or email watercomms@logan.qld.gov.au.
