Grants for bioenergy, biomass

Bioenergy and biomass were the focus of 13 grants of up to $100,000 announced in October under the $1.25 million Wood and Fibre Processing Innovation Program. The Meander Valley Council, Dorset Renewable Industries and Norske Skog were among organisations to benefit. Meander Valley Council’s Craig Perkins said the $100,000 grant would help fund a $375,000 feasibility study into bioenergy production. Partly financed by council, the study would look at how such local businesses as Tasmanian Alkaloids could utilise bioenergy – leading to private investment opportunities. Dorset Renewable Industries will use its $100,000 to further develop a wood pellet plant project, while Norske Skog will use its grant of the same amount to help in building a residue-processing plant at Boyer. Other grant recipients were: Mondelez Australia; Pentarch Forest Products; East Tamar Maintenance Services; Wood Pellets Tasmania; Huon Valley Timber; ARTEC Australia; and Botanical Resources Australia.
