Together with the Victorian Government, Gekko Systems today took further steps towards a greener future, unveiling a prototype biodigester that will help industry turn waste into renewable energy.

An Australian first, the custom engineered shipping container converts bio waste into gas, electricity and odour free fertiliser. For industries like dairy farming, this will mean a waste disposal system that reduces their carbon footprint, saves money on electricity and provides a nutrient rich fertiliser.

The innovation marks a first for Gekko Systems, applying their engineering capability, currently used in the mining services industry, to local industry challenges and viable renewable energy generation.

“We are excited to apply the skills of our talented team here in regional Victoria to a problem that the whole of Australia is facing; electricity” said Sandy Gray, Gekko Systems Technical Director.

“The fact that our prototype also deals with waste disposal which is another challenge Australia is grappling with, is a strong indicator that clever solutions can be created locally. Certainly we’re hopeful we can improve this technology down the track to deal with other forms of waste such as council rubbish collection,” added Sandy.

Gekko Systems have been awarded funding from the Victoria Government via the Sector Growth Program which supports projects that align with the Future Industries Sector Strategies; creating new jobs and driving growth, productivity and increasing the competitiveness of Victorian businesses.

The technology design and development of the biodigester is the result of collaboration between Gekko Systems and a piggery in Ballarat who have operated a biodigester for a number of years to optimise treatment efficiency. The first unit will be installed at a Bungaree Dairy Farm in mid 2017.
