Renewable energy for sustainability
Generating 100% carbon free electricity whilst diverting organic waste from landfill.
The company is proud to have launched the first food waste to energy power generation facility in Perth where 100% of food waste collected from various industries is converted into either energy or fertiliser.
Diverting waste from landfill for 100% certified organic output
All waste output from the AD process is used in composting of organic product on site or used in agriculture to add organic nutrient content to arid farming soils. This waste output is Certified Organic.
Over 100,000 tonnes of waste has been diverted from landfill
To date over 100,000 tonnes of waste has been diverted from landfill and recycled through Richgro’s AD plant which was then converted into clean energy.
