EarthPower Technologies is Australia’s first regional food waste-to-energy facility located in Sydney’s west.

EarthPower accepts organic waste material from the industrial, commercial and residential sectors and converts it to green energy and nutrient-rich fertilizer.

The key benefits of the EarthPower Facility include

  • EarthPower provides clients with lower gate fees than competitors within the putrescible waste industry, 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 facilitates the diversion of waste from landfill and subsequent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • Production of green electricity relieves pressure from traditional coal fired electricity supply by producing an ongoing source of energy
