Carbon abatement contract brings home the bacon

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

21 November 2016

​A Western Australian piggery project uses an agricultural method to convert effluent waste from a one of Australia's largest livestock production facilities into electricity.

The system installed as part of the Emissions Reduction Fund project will convert the organic load in the effluent from the facility to biogas, comprising of approximately 60 per cent methane. The biogas would otherwise escape to the atmosphere and will instead be harvested and treated before being used as fuel to generate electricity.

The biogas project is expected to replace more than 95 per cent of grid-supplied electricity for the livestock enterprise.
