Quantum Power begins NSW biogas installation

Southern Meats sheep processing facility, in Goulburn NSW, is the site of Quantum Power Limited’s 10th biogas project in Australia.

The project will generate 1 MW of renewable energy, by converting the organic load from the wet waste stream produced by the facility, into biogas through anaerobic digestion.

The biogas will then be refined and used as a fuel for the renewable power station to be constructed on site.

The anaerobic digestion system and biogas fuelled power-station will take approximately six to nine months to construct.
