       JW
       •    Updated the group on the construction of an AWT facility at
            Lucas Heights. The Alternative Waste Technology (AWT) is a
            positive direction when considering the present focus on
            Greenhouse Gas issues. An AWT has recyclables recovery
            from household waste before the treatment process. And the
            treatment process enables the almost complete capture of
            methane which is burnt to generate electricity. A similar
            facility will be opened at Jacks Gully in July 2008.
