The Bioenergy Association invites anyone interested in how production of biogas and biofertiliser from residual organic waste can contribute to a circular bioeconomy.

About the webinar

Ecogas's utility scale anaerobic digestion plant located at Reporoa, Central North Island has addressed many market barriers to bring an internationally well tested but until now under-utilised waste technology to New Zealand.

Ecogas Director and development advisor, Grant Smith has overseen the project from its initial development by food waste to stockfeed company, Ecostock through to the current 75,000 tpa capacity project now under construction.

Grant will describe the Ecogas development journey, New Zealand market challenges and opportunities and the benefits a bioenergy and biofertiliser project like Reporoa brings to New Zealand as it makes its way to Net Zero by 2050.

The Reporoa project provides a tangible example of what can be achieved with bioenergy resources right across New Zealand.

The processing of residual organic waste by use of anaerobic digestion technology to produce biogas and biofertiliser avoids the need to otherwise landfill the waste. The revenue from the high value products which are produced can assist offset business and community waste management costs.
