Innovating Energy is developing the Australian BioEnergy Landscape with a pipeline of renewable energy development bioenergy projects using agriculture and food wastes

Nowra Bioenergy Plant About the Facility

Biogas is produced from the anaerobic (oxygen free) digestion of organic matter. It can be made from a variety of organic resources, including agricultural waste, food scraps, food processing waste and energy crops.

In addition to energy production, anaerobic digestion also produces digestate – the material remaining after anaerobic digestion of biodegradable feedstocks. Digestate is a nutrient-rich material that can be used as a fertiliser and applied on agricultural land as a replacement to chemical fertilisers.

Biogas Energy Plant About the Facility
BIOGAS AS A RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE

Biogas is a source of energy that can be used to generate heat and electricity. Biogas can also be upgraded into biomethane: a gas with a chemical composition very similar to natural gas that can be injected into the gas grid and also used for industrial purposes or as a fuel for gas vehicles.

With bioenergy projects, assets generate revenue streams from:
(i) organic waste (FOGO) food processing liquid organic waste.
(ii) sale of renewable electricity, heat and gas.
(iii) future opportunities for sale of biofertilizer, CO2 and hydrogen.

BioEnergy contributes to Load Power
BIOENERGY AS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR
TO BASE LOAD POWER

Australia’s biogas potential is equivalent to almost 9 per cent of Australia’s total energy consumption of 4,247 PJ in 2016-2017.

This represents up to 90,000 biogas units, with the potential to avoid up to 9 million tonnes of CO2e emissions each year.

Bioenergy Projects significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting organic waste from landfill  reducing methane emissions and displacing the use of fossil fuels.
