Supporting the Circular Economy: Creating Resources from Municipal FOGO

Our neighbours at Grampians Central West are hosting a webinar which will explore three different FOGO processing projects which utilise different processing technologies. The speakers will shine a light on their journeys including waste collection arrangements, procuring different technologies, financial aspects and lessons learned. There will also be the opportunity to participate in a Q&A sessions with the speakers.

Presentations will be from the following organisations:

• Byron Shire Council are in the process of creating the first dry anaerobic digestion facility in Australia. Locally sourced FOGO will be processed into a compost product and renewable energy.

• Barwon Water is partnering with major businesses and 6 Victorian councils on a Regional Renewable Organics Network. FOGO sourced from these councils will be processed into biochar and renewable energy.

• Gaia Envirotech have partnered with two regional Victorian councils to trial their in-vessel composting systems. Their technology allows councils to directly manage their FOGO to create compost.

This webinar is targeted specifically targeted to council waste staff who are looking to expand their understanding of FOGO processing opportunities and what is involved. However, attendance is welcomed by any interested stakeholders.
