Impact Fertilisers, a brand of Ameropa Australia, wins major environmental award
(October 24, 2016)
The Platypus Award recognised Impact Fertilisers’ leadership role in the successful north Queensland fertiliser bag recovery pilot project: A product stewardship program designed to minimize the impact of farm plastic on the environment.
The fertiliser bag recovery trial operated last season, resulting in the removal of over 72,000 one-tonne bags from the environment through a new independent entity, FarmWaste Recovery.
The plastic recovered from the trial was sufficient to manufacture over 1,200 park benches or similar products.
