Flexi Tanks NZ is proud to be a key player in this state-of-the-art, clean energy plant that is powered by food waste from businesses and kerbside food/scrap collections from the Waikato and Auckland areas. It marks a significant step in the right direction towards achieving a more sustainable future for New Zealand.
Below is an extract from an article published in the Waterford Press this week:
"As a key supplier to the new Ecogas organics processing facility at Reporoa, Flexi Tanks New Zealand is playing a significant role in the development of this country's first large-scale waste-to-bioenergy plant.
The $30 million facility is one of the most advanced clean bioenergy plants in the world. Once fully up and running, it will convert 75,000 tonnes of organic waste collected throughout the North Island each year into biogas, biofertiliser and electricity for commercial applications.
Being involved in a state-of-the art, commercial scale anaerobic digestion facility such as this is a first for Flexi Tanks in the New Zealand market. Four Flexi Tanks (pictured above), each with a capacity of 500,000 litres, have been installed at Reporoa.
"We're very excited to be part of this ground-breaking project," says Flexi Tanks NZ General Manager Andre Meier, who led the on-site installation of Flexi Tanks at Reporoa. "Our tanks will be used to store water than can then be fed into the anaerobic digester, as well as to store water for fire safety purposes. As well, Flexi Tanks are needed on this project to store liquid bio-fertiliser, produced out of the process, that will be used to fertilise local farmland."
