Biogas to Renewable Power Project

We expedite the transition to renewables with clean energy and lower carbon solutions, reliability, effectively, commercially for our customers.
Carbon credits enable a commercially viable project to create additional abatement.

  • Long-term contract with Gladstone Regional Council to recover and beneficially use biogas from this regional landfill at Benaraby near Gladstone. This improves air quality, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to the local economy.

  • No regulatory requirement to capture biogas, however ACCUs enable additional carbon abatement (above its 30% baseline) from a commercially viable biogas to renewable power project under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).

  • 1MW renewable power station designed, built and commissioned by LGI in 2016. It supplies consistent, dispatchable (peak and base load) power to help stabilise the local electricity system for planning future development in the region.

  • LGI collaborated closely with the Council regarding the design, installation, operations and maintenance of the biogas management system, including the monitoring and reporting services provided and to develop the power station.

  • The Council won the 2017 National Awards for Local Government for their submission for this biogas from landfill to power project
