An exciting opportunity exists for industry, business and primary producers in the region to transform waste products into energy and reduce business costs. Registrations are now open for the Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast Bioenergy Seminar to be held on December 6th at the Mt Gambier city hall.

“We have been working hard to arrange a fantastic day that incorporates high calibre presenters, current information, hands on learning and facilitated workshops” said organiser Elizabeth Perkins, Manager of Investment Attraction and Infrastructure at RDALC. “Guest Speaker Mark Glover from EcoWaste and Renewed Carbon will be presenting on the economic benefits of regions entering the emerging bioeconomy. Mark will also lead a discussion around large scale biomass projects occurring in other regions and what the opportunities might look like for our region.” She said.

Shahana Mckenzie from Bioenergy Australia will provide insights into international investment in bioenergy in Australia and present findings from Bioenergy Australia’s State of the Nation Report which ranks the States and Territories regarding their Bioenergy performance.

Local biomass projects will also take centre stage as part of the seminar. “For the past few years a number of local bioenergy initiatives have been developing in the region and some of these projects are applying world firsts in innovation” said RDALC Chair Peter Gandolfi. “From anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, or gasification of wood residue, local businesses have been engaging with bioenergy technology to solve their energy needs and save money”.

Rachel Brdanovic, Sustainability Speacialist with Tandem Energy will give participants a hands-on opportunity to work on understanding their energy requirements and usage. By analysing current energy consumption and site operations, participants can identify fluctuating requirements, predict future demands, and identify relevant and achievable energy solutions.
