Ōtaki College is exploring the possibility of wood pellet gasification to feed its existing school boiler used for heating.
At least 11 tonnes of food is wasted in Ōtaki town every week. This amounts to about $500 per household being lost in a year, quite apart from the landfill emissions. A huge amount of energy used to process and transport this food is also wasted.
Nufuels Ltd. is an Ōtaki based renewable energy start-up company.
