Barwon Water’s Colac Water Reclamation Plant has just received their 2G Agenitor 408 Biogas unit which will use organic waste to produce electricity.

Using high strength organic waste from industries in Colac, it is predicted that enough electricity will be produced equivalent to powering more than 1000 homes.

This project is a further contribution by Barwon Water to boosting Victoria’s renewable energy capacity, driving down energy prices and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in order to take a huge leap forward to the Victorian Government’s water plan to achieve a target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

Barwon Water is well on their journey to adapting to climate change and ensuring that long-term environmentally conscious energy solutions are utilised.
