Biogas to Renewable Power Project

We expedite the transition to renewables with clean energy and carbon abatement solutions. Carbon credits enable a commercially viable project to create additional abatement.

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

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

  • The power station was designed, built and commissioned by LGI in 2016 with 1MW and expanded to 1.7MW in 2019 with scope for expansion and enhancement already underway.

  • The renewable power station 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.
