What are the benefits? What are your concerns?
A project initiated by the Northern Rivers BioHubs Consortium
You are invited to participate in an interactive workshop to assess community support for prospective bioenergy projects in the NSW Northern Rivers region.
Bioenergy is a form of energy produced from biomass, i.e. materials derived from plants, animals and their by-products. Examples include sugar cane residue, livestock waste, municipal green waste, forestry residues, and plants/weeds grown for energy.
During the workshop, you will learn more about bioenergy and its prospects in the Northern Rivers. You will take part in discussions around the potential benefits, concerns, and challenges of various bioenergy technologies and energy sources. You will also have the opportunity to rate your level of support for prospective industries.
Workshops will be held from 6-8pm (please arrive by 5.45) in four locations:
