NZ Biomass Resource Atlas, Vol. 2

Volume 2 - Wastes and Effluents

(by Peter Hall and Barbara Hock, Scion, May 2008)

This report presents a set of data as maps and tables, showing the amounts and locations of energy that can be derived from municipal, farm and some industrial wastes and effluents as at 2005. The resources included are major sources of biomass wastes derived from;

  • municipal solid waste; municipal biosolids; farm dairy effluent; pig farm effluent; poultry farm waste; dairy factory effluent, and meat processing effluent

These resources represent the major sources of effluents, and is not a comprehensive list of all effluents available.  This report provides a summary of data, as it is known at the time of writing, attempts to predict forward based on drivers such as population and stock numbers were not attempted due to large areas of uncertainty.


Please note that only Volume 2 Wastes and Effluents is uploaded to this resource. Volume 1 Lignocellulosic  could not be uploaded due to its large size (over 129MB).  Please contact us to arrange to have Volume 1 sent to you.
