an environmental design An Environmental Management Framework for the plant applies to the main facility, marine structures, pipelines and power supply. It includes 221 strict environmental performance requirements across 38 areas, from wetlands and waterways to air quality and visual amenity. The plant has been designed to minimise adverse impacts on the landscape, local communities, cultural heritage and flora and fauna. Its living green roof is the largest in the southern hemisphere. It includes the landscape-wave design which helps limit visibility of the industrial buildings from the surrounding public areas and provides a link to the nearby coastal landscape. The land-based plant is integrated into its surroundings and preserves the natural environment by creating an ecological space, thus reducing the environmental impact. delivering, operating and maintaining the most technically advanced, environmentally friendly and energy efficient desalination facility in australia Australia’s largest living green roof of 26,000 square metres, with 100,000 indigenous plants 100 per cent offset of electricity by renewable energy certificates

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
