Glenvar Harvest Direct – A bioenergy and weed management tool

The emerging bioenergy industry will create opportunities for farmers to control weeds as farmers look at efficient and cost effective ways to capture biomass such as wheat straw to feed bioenergy projects. In the process, machines like the Glenvar Harvest Direct could be the tool that farmers use to not only harvest this resource but remove weeds seeds from paddocks as well.

Currently most farmers either lay the crop residue in rows and burn it, or use chaff carts to capture ...

Our view is that we need to build the confidence of farmers and feedstock suppliers in bioenergy technology, develop biomass supply chains and ultimately be in a position to supply large amounts of biomass to future bioenergy and biofuels projects across Australia.

For now we are developing small on site solutions that use wastes resources to ...

Energy Farmers presents at Bioenergy Australia’s annual conference.

Our bioenergy presentation at Bioenergy Australia’s annual conference held in Melbourne on the 25th-27th of November was on the work we have been doing in the bioenergy space. It was great to mix with other industry players and sobering to hear they are all facing the same constraints getting projects off the ground.

Biomass projects are complex needing a lot of different aspects to come together to ensure project success. Financing these projects is an issue, long development times mean ...
