The Victorian Government has recently announced $10 million to support projects that create electricity, heat, gas or liquid fuel from organic waste that would otherwise go to landfill.
The Waste to Energy – Bioenergy Fund supports farming and food production industries to turn organic waste – including agricultural, livestock, food and wood waste – into renewable bioenergy.
- Stream 1: Project development – supports Applicants to scope, test, and gain approvals to achieve pre-construction and pre-financial close phases of a bioenergy project.
- Stream 2: Project infrastructure – supports Applicants with a proven business case in the purchase, construction, and commissioning of infrastructure to convert organic matter to bioenergy.
Applications are open from 1 July 2022 and close Friday 26 August 2022
