Food Waste to Energy. Earthpower Technologies (Earthpower) is Australia's first regional food waste–to–energy facility located in Camellia, NSW. Earthpower accepts solid and liquid food waste streams from the industrial, commercial and residential sectors and converts it to green energy and nutrient-rich fertiliser.
Earthpower provides clients with affordable gate-fees, enabling a viable alternative to traditional landfilling and allows for potential savings on other waste disposal costs by improved source segregation and recovery of recyclable organic material. Earthpower also facilitates the diversion of waste from landfill and subsequent reduction in green house gas emissions.
The methane generated from organics breakdown is used as fuel for the generation of electricity. This electricity is sold into the grid for distribution to domestic, commercial and industrial clients and at full capacity, Earthpower is capable of producing enough green electricity to power over 3,600 homes.
