This project is about empowering regional agricultural communities to generate their own energy from organic waste material.
This is about developing a model that is scalable, and able to be replicated within regional communities.
The problem arising is two fold: Regional agricultural communities , the food bowl of Australia , are under pressure to adapt. On one hand high input costs for food production. On the other requirements and expenses for waste management.
The proposed solution explores the use of technology to convert this waste to multiple products of higher value.
This project is unique for three reasons. Firstly, by combining several biomass waste materials to improve the amount of energy produced. Secondly, by distributing that energy through a localised network. And thirdly, creating a Community enterprise to reflect the potential for community investment.
