Sustainability Victoria in collaboration with project partners, the Victorian Centre for Sustainable Chemical Manufacturing, and the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, are conducting a series of workshops on “Energy and Materials from Organic waste”. The first workshop will be held on the 23rd of June 2015 in Tatura, with two further workshops planned for other parts of Victoria.

The purpose of the workshops is to

  • engage local industry in a discussion on the value of organic waste, and options for profitable uses of this resource;
  • help participants to develop and assess a business case for a waste to energy generation project (Biogas);
  • provide practical information and connections to business, research and government expertise;
  • facilitate the uptake of new technologies by participating industries.

The workshops will target organisations that produce organic waste and are interested in exploring options for its recovery and reuse.

 Case studies will look at a range of successful examples, from small, on site processes, to larger, collaborative, precinct scale solutions.

To help us tailor the workshop to the needs of local industries, we request that you take this 5 minute survey. Your response will help provide focus areas for the workshop, and will influence where the final two workshops will be held.

The survey will remain open until the 22nd of May.
