February 6, 2020 |

In Australia, Bloomberg reports that construction begins this week for the $1.35 billion agricultural waste-to-energy facility in Katunga, Victoria, the first project of the kind in the country. The groundbreaking took place last week. Katunga Fresh who produces hydroponic tomatoes will use the energy to expand its greenhouse production. By 2023, crop waste from 75,000 hectares of land will be used as feedstock for the facility that will produce renewable diesel and jet fuel in addition to electricity and fertilizer.
