The scale and importance of liquid fuel usage in our regional economies is significant.
With advanced thinking, the availability of large scale, managed biomass supply, and the application of advanced biomass to hydrocarbon liquid fuels technology, we can provide solutions to support regional fuel security and enhance our local environmental performance.
Thinking and acting regionally can stimulate the local economy with jobs supporting the growth, management and transport of biomass at a scale that has real benefits. Biomass supply combined with a high tech, value adding conversion plant can create additional highly skilled positions to the workforce.
A regional fuel ecosystem means reduced collection and distribution distances for resources and products using locally grown feedstock, with locally produced fuel and local benefits to the transport fuel needs of that community. Opportunities arise for the collaboration of a range of stakeholders to participate in regional ecosystem projects both in the public and private sectors or industrial cluster developments.
