Ecogas, a joint venture between Pioneer Energy Ltd and Ecostock Supplies Ltd will begin construction on the first large-scale food waste to bioenergy facility in New Zealand. It is expected that upon completion, the facility will be able to remove up to 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, which is the equivalent of planting 218,400 trees annually. The facility is expected to be operational by 2022 and process 75,000 tonnes of organic waste, supporting a reduction in the 327,000 tonnes of food waste that is sent to landfill in New Zealand each year.
