Report: Energy from Waste through Pyrolysis Project Lessons Learnt Report 4 (PDF 156KB)
This is the fourth lessons learnt report for this project and outlines the delays to construction due to total fire bans.
Renergi Pty Ltd has developed a patented, award-winning pyrolysis technology, which is termed as “grinding pyrolysis” technology. The technical feasibility of this patented technology has previously been demonstrated with a 100 kg/hr demonstration plant funded by the ARENA and the WA state government.
During this project, in partnership with the Shire of Collie, WA, Renergi will design, build, commission and operate a pre-commercial demonstration pyrolysis plant in Collie to convert municipal solid wastes (MSW), forestry/agricultural residue or other types of biomass feedstocks into three main commercial products – bio-oil, biochar and wood vinegar. The success of this project will contribute to the transition of Collie from a coal-reliant economy to a renewable-reliant economy by developing a negative-emission bio-based circular economy.
