Media Release: 8 Dec 2021

Firstgas Group and Ecogas are celebrating New Zealand’s first large-scale biogas to pipeline project that will transform kerbside waste into a valuable source of renewable gas for homes and businesses.

Once completed, the plant will supply the equivalent of 9,000 homes and businesses with biomethane, a type of renewable gas which is produced from organic waste like food scraps,  agricultural and landfill waste. It is expected to eliminate more than 11,000 tonnes of CO2 per year; action that helps move New Zealand towards its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.  Read more here...
