Foresight Group focuses on bioenergy, energy from waste sectors

The CEFC is working with Foresight Group to identify and develop opportunities to invest equity in a range of bioenergy and energy from waste projects in the Australian market. These can include:

  • landfill gas capture and destruction
  • anaerobic digestion
  • biomass to energy from waste
  • the production of biofuels such as Processed Engineered Fuel (PEP) and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) which can be used as an alternative to gas or coal-fired generation.

Internationally, the Foresight Group has financed waste projects with an annual waste processing capacity of 1.9 million tonnes.

The CEFC work with the Foresight Group aims to help accelerate and widen market uptake of bioenergy and energy from waste technologies that have a proven track record overseas but are not yet widely deployed in Australia's energy mix.
