- Project PartnersNdevr EnvironmentalThis bioenergy project was completed on 10 October 2019.
The MSM Milling Biomass Fuel Switch project involves replacing current LPG fuelled boilers with a 5 MW biomass fuelled boiler using locally sourced timber residue as a fuel source.
The installation of the new biomass boiler will displace several smaller existing LPG boilers and save around 4,000tCO2-e per annum and over 80,000tCO2-e for the project life. The project will produce 7,147kg/h of steam output at full capacity, to be used in milling and processing operations. The increased capacity to produce steam at a lower cost with a renewable resource will ensure the business can expand its operation without the risk of exposure to volatile LPG price fluctuations.
Area of innovation
The MSM Milling Biomass Fuel Switch Project features areas of innovation that includes the:
- Integration of a biomass-fuelled boiler into a large scale agricultural processing facility
- Use of bioenergy options in the food processing industry.

The benefits of this project will:
- Reduce greenhouse emissions from 1,133 to 23.47 kg Co2-eq, a reduction in fossil depletion from 401.3 to 7.15E-03 kg oil-eq and a reduction in fossil fuel energy use from 16,801 to 0.2994 MJ
- Help create alternative value streams from materials once considered as waste.
