Ecogas celebrates first birthday
9 November 2023
Ecogas proudly celebrates its first year of successful operations in Reporoa recycling food wastes into biogas and biofertiliser. Since its opening in 2022, Ecogas has processed over 20,000 tonnes of food scraps. Had this waste ended up in our landfills, it would have released over 13,480 tonnes of CO2 into our atmosphere. By utilising anaerobic digestion technology, Ecogas has not only avoided over 13,040 tonnes of these emissions but created sources of renewable electricity, heat and fertiliser. Almost 16,000 tonnes of Fertify Regenerative Fertiliser has been harvested and spread on local farmland supporting soil resilience and lessening reliance on imported and synthetic fertilisers.
