Location: Naracoorte, South Australia
Client: Teys Australia
Cogeneration Contractor: Evo Energy Technologies
Installation: biogas scrubber and 2G Avus500 plus Biogas CHP
Teys Australia is one of the largest beef producers in Australia and has made the initiative to support sustainable beef processing and to reduce environmental impacts, including consumption of energy, water and the amount of waste sent to landfill. Teys has recently developed a 5-year resource efficiency, carbon intensity and renewables investment target – a first in the Australian red meat industry!
Evo Energy Technologies has provided the Naracoorte plant with a Biological Scrubber and an Avus500plus 550kW Biogas CHP in a 7m x 3m x 3m container module with gas dehumidification and active carbon filtration. Wastewater from the plant will be contained in a Covered Anaerobic Lagoon (a CAL). The CAL will convert this wastewater into biogas and the biogas will then fuel cogeneration equipment for the Naracoorte plant.
Teys Australia can expect 2,500MWh of renewable energy yearly (this is equivalent to the energy usage of 500 average Australian homes). A portion of the electricity and heat within the plant will now be provided though a clean and renewable energy source.
