This EOI is issued to the open market in order to: 
 Begin Barwon Water’s procurement process for a new ‘Regional Renewable 
Organics Network’ project, 
 Identify, qualify, and shortlist, a number of organisations interested in bidding to 
become the projects EPCM provider, and 
 Test a number of internal assumptions to help ensure that the eventual RFT 
and EPCM contract are precisely tuned to reflect the capability, appetite, and 
conditions, present in the marketplace.

The Regional Renewable Organics Network (RRON) is a proposed organics 
processing facility that leverages Barwon Water infrastructure to maximise the value of 
organic waste and convert it to valuable end-products and renewable energy, reducing 
costs and emissions, creating jobs and driving a circular economy for the region and 

The facility will have the capability to process a range of organic wastes including 
municipal organic waste (food and garden organics), commercial and industrial organic 
waste and biosolids. A large percentage of this waste is currently sent to landfill. The 
end-products will be soil conditioners aimed at providing benefit to agribusiness in the 

The facility is proposed to be built in a staged approach with multiple technology 
streams. This allows the facility to adapt as waste management behaviours, waste 
volumes and end markets evolve. The first stage will have the capacity to process the 
projected municipal food organic and garden organic wastes volumes at the mid 
2030’s, a portion of the regional commercial and industrial organic wastes, and 
biosolids that are in excess of the capacity of the existing Plenary biosolids at Black 
Rock. At 2032, a second stage investment decision may be required, but stage 2 is out 
of scope for this procurement. 

Please refer to the RRON Briefing Pack at Appendix A for detailed information.
