COMING SOON: Cobar BioHub
Renewed Carbon is proposing to construct the ‘Cobar BioHub’ (the BioHub) near Cobar in central western New South Wales (NSW) (the Project). The BioHub would be a regional vegetation processing facility for vegetation. The facility would receive vegetation classified as invasive native species (INS) harvested from surrounding agricultural land and would process this into goods for sale and export. This would include high-quality timber products, essential oils, biochar and reductant. A by-product of the process would be the generation of around 3-5 megawatts (MW) of electricity, which would be fed back into the grid through a new transmission line connection. The BioHub would be the first of its kind in NSW and may potentially become one of a network of similar facilities across regional NSW.
