Biogas Generator

Shepparton, Victoria
Capacity: 1.1 MW
Commissioned: 2009
Owned and operated by Diamond Energy

The Diamond Energy Shepparton biogas generation facility captures methane from the anaerobic digestion of sewage waste water at Goulburn Valley Water’s Shepparton Wastewater Treatment Plant. Wastewater from Shepparton’s local industries (including the SPC Ardmona processing factory) is fed into the Shepparton treatment plant which in turn produces a methane-rich biogas. This methane is the fuel to the Diamond Energy renewable generation facility, and the power produced is fed back into the national grid.

The Shepparton facility was a lead and significant part of the ‘Resource Recovery Precinct’ that won the 2010 United Nations World Environment Day ‘Best Business Environmental Initiative’ award.
