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.
The biogas fuel used by the 2G Avus500plus unit, supplied by Evo Energy, will be captured from the natural breakdown of pig manure and turn a waste product into an energy source.
The Evo Energy unit is in the shape of a 12 m container. It offers combined heat and power technology that ensures energy efficiency of up to 90%.
The installation is expected to generate around 25% of the site’s power per year, resulting in energy cost savings and in an estimated offset of over 28,000 per tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions, from grid and methane emissions avoided, every year.
