Australia – Biorefinery

Construction of a biorefinery converting sawmill waste into biodiesel and bitumen

Boral Timber is to investigate the feasibility of building a second-generation biofuels refinery at Herons Creek near Port Macquarie.

If it goes ahead, the facility will convert up to 50,000 tonnes of waste sawmill residue into transport-grade renewable diesel and bitumen. It could eventually account for up to 15% of Boral’s annual diesel needs.
