Bioenergy and waste management can play an important role in Australia’s clean energy transition – with new and proven technologies able to create energy from waste, reduce landfill volumes and cut emissions.
Australia’s waste sector is undergoing an important transition, requiring significant investment in infrastructure and equipment – both upgrades to existing assets, as well as the installation of new assets.
The CEFC supports the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ recommendations of the international waste hierarchy and focuses on projects that seek to make a material reduction to Australia’s waste-related carbon emissions.
By focusing on clean energy technologies, these investments can reduce carbon emissions by diverting waste from landfill, as well as help ensure that waste processing and resource recovery operations are as energy efficient as possible.
Importantly, recycling and resource recovery can offset the production of new energy-intensive materials, making a vital contribution to the better management of waste Australia-wide.
