  • Special Topic: Regen, an Integrated Waste to Energy Project for the Ōtaki Transfer Station

In June, there will be a presentation of research that is being undertaken by Nufuels Ltd., an Ōtaki based clean energy business, looking at the potential for an integrated waste to energy system for waste at the Ōtaki Transfer Station.  It includes extraction of energy from plastics and tyres and conversion to useful fuels (such as electricity generation), gas production from food waste and some residual organic wastes, battery storage (alongside solar energy production at the solar farm), an energy management system, and possible delivery of thermal energy to surrounding businesses.  It involves looking at energy balances and the overall economics of such an approach.
