23 March 2020
Focus area: Energy
Program stream: Sustainability
Project number: 2018-1014
This project looked to demonstrate that meat processing plants can become energy sufficient using technologies that are reliable and available as well as identifying gaps and further research required.

The activity was based around an industry partner facility to demonstrate feasibility, scalability and application to the red meat industry. It also shows how processors can reduce or eliminate reliance on volatile energy markets, enhance industry sustainability while also increasing social license to operate.

The project scope included a roadmap for implementation accompanied by full business (case including ROI) and explainer video.
