Australian Renewable Energy Agency gives A$2.4 million grant for biorefinery project

June 28, 2016 |

In Australia, the country’s first biorefinery capable of producing renewable diesel and jet fuels from plant material could become a reality in Queensland with support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.

ARENA is providing A$2.4 million in funding support for Southern Oil Refining to develop and construct a state-of-the-art biocrude and biofuel laboratory in Yarwun, near Gladstone in Queensland. The project will inform the feasibility and design of a proposed commercial-scale biorefinery. ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht said there was clear potential for biofuel production and refining in Australia.
