Accelerating the role of bioenergy in Australia’s Circular Economy
How can Australia accelerate a circular economy that can help the nation meet its 2030 targets of lower carbon emissions?
Australia’s first Bioenergy Roadmap (the Roadmap) has identified that a key benefit of Australia’s growing bioenergy sector is that bioenergy helps drive more effective waste management, enabling valuable energy recovery from more waste that cannot be recycled.
By shifting from a linear waste management model to a circular economy, Australia can move from being one of the highest per capita waste generators in the world to a recycling and remanufacturing powerhouse.
A key technology in accelerating Australia’s circular economy is anaerobic digestion. The controlled decomposition of biodegradable organic waste can be used to produce biogas, a methane rich fuel, heat and digestate, a byproduct that can be used as a soil conditioner or fertiliser.
But how do we accelerate these identified key benefits that bioenergy can play? How can Australia accelerate a circular economy that can help the nation meet its 2030 targets of lower carbon emissions?
Bioenergy Australia has commissioned multiple reports to address these questions. Join us as we launch the reports and explore the findings, including the opportunities to accelerate and the challenges of growing Australia’s Circular Economy.
