Australian Vinyls is Australia^s only manufacturer of PVC resin, producing 130,000 tonnes per annum using a highly automated process.
The AV plant at Laverton is licensed as a Major Hazard Facility. The plant has consistently operated at benchmark safety performance rates through a combination of first class engineering, management systems and behavioural safety processes.
Australian Vinyls is committed to environmentally sustainable manufacture. The site has recently achieved its Greenhouse Challenge targets, through steam, electricity and natural gas conservation measures. Many of the actions (e.g. a recent review of its cooling tower operation) achieved significant energy and cost savings with little or no capital expenditure.
