Agrifood company Rivalea reduces environmental impact and energy consumption with new biogas generator

Rivalea is one of Australia’s leading integrated agri-food companies. The company operates across a number of sites that include farming, processing and distribution.

Operating within sound environmental and sustainability principles, Rivalea is set to minimise its environmental footprint and reduce its energy consumption with a new biogas generator installation.

In April 2017, Rivalea installed the custom built 2G Avus500plus biogas cogeneration system in a 12-metre container. The custom built 2G Avus500plus unit, offers combined heat and power (CHP) technology that guarantees advanced energy efficiency of up to 90%.
