HOW DOES IT WORK?
The basic premise of the project is local resources producing local energy for local industry and agriculture.
By converting organic waste from food production into energy, local biomass waste resources will be harvested and transformed. The waste is to be converted into high-value products, including energy and fertilisers, through the use of proven technology.
As a participant in the OE&H Sustainability Advanced Program, C.L.E.A.N. Cowra Inc has been working with the Regional Operations Group in the initial development of the project.
Initial exploration of the project is expected to reveal the potential opportunities for aggregation of residual biomass from agricultural, industrial and community processes, and the value of a co-digestion process. Further, C.L.E.A.N. Cowra Inc hopes to more comprehensively understand the significance of an agricultural contribution and potential opportunities within existing farming systems through explorations. These explorations are likely to reveal the potential scalability of technology and likely benefits of decentralisation from traditional energy sources as key benefits of the project.
