6pm to 8pm
Supper Room, Ōtaki

A study to show that a wide range of Otaki waste streams can be processed into usable energy at the Otaki Transfer Station:

REGEN — Intergrated Waste Management.

Listen to a  presentation about research that is being undertaken by Nufuels Ltd., an Ōtaki based clean energy business, that is looking at the potential for an integrated waste to energy system at the Ōtaki Transfer Station.

This includes extraction of energy from plastics and tyres and conversion to useful fuels (to generate electricity), gas production from food waste and some residual organic wastes, battery storage (alongside solar energy production from the the Community Solar Farm being build). Building an integrated 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. 

After the presentation there will be updates on other Energise Ōtaki projects currently active and a chance to discuss any ideas you might have for developing other projects.
