Waste to energy discussion paper released

The Victorian Government has released a discussion paper on converting waste to energy to support the development of new technologies, including anaerobic digestion and thermal treatment of waste.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Action Lily D’Ambrosio released the paper on 26 October during a visit to Shepparton, where she also announced five grants from the Waste to Energy Infrastructure Fund.

The Waste to Energy Infrastructure Fund was announced in the 2016 State Budget as part of the Government’s Climate Change innovation and Jobs Initiative.

Feedback received on the discussion paper will help inform the Victorian Government’s development of a waste to energy policy, to be released in 2018.
