Government organisation Sustainability Victoria has announced a $750,000 (€460,000) grant to boost bioenergy infrastructure projects in the region. The Bioenergy Infrastructure Fund is open to industry, social enterprises, community groups and government entities working on bioenergy technology to help keep organic waste out of landfill and generate renewable electricity.
"Victoria's commercial and industrial sector generates more than 900,000 tonnes of organic waste every year, with over a quarter of that being food, and around 10% is recovered," said Carl Muller, Interim CEO of Sustainability Victoria.
"Bioenergy can play an important role in the mix of renewable energy, supporting not only our transition towards a renewable energy generation network, but also a circular economy, while building the energy resilience of industry."
