COMING SOON – Gekko systems turns cow poo into fertilisers and energy

A western Victorian mining company is turning poo into gold by converting the smelly waste into valuable assets — smell-free fertilisers and energy.

Gekko Systems has designed and built a biodigester on a dairy farm at Bungaree, outside Ballarat, and is hoping the renewable technology could be used across farming and beyond.

The biodigester, which is still in its start-up phase, will eventually contribute to at least half the power of farmer Mark Trigg’s robotic dairy.
