Our Engineering Projects

Jandakot Bioenergy Project

Delorean’s Engineering Division undertook the development, design, finance, build, commission and operational support for the Jandakot Bioenergy Plant – processing Australian Commercial and industrial organic waste streams to power generation.

Delorean handled all, approvals from planning to DER (EPA) including grid connection and sale of the renewable power generated on site.

Blue Lake Milling Project (CBH Group)

The Blue Lake Milling (CBH Group) Bioenergy Plant in Bordertown, South Australia is now in the advanced stages of commissioning.  This project has produced electricity and heat from grain milling by-product. 

The project will offset in full the Principal’s existing and future energy requirements, with surplus energy exported to the grid

Ecogas Project

Delorean Corporation’s Engineering Division is contracted for the design, turnkey build and construction of this bioenergy facility in New Zealand.   This facility will take food organics from the Auckland City Council collections, with the energy produced supplying a major greenhouse operation.

The construction program is now underway for this project.

Reduced Costs, Major New Revenues.

We’re about pragmatic, feet-on-the-ground, commercially viable plants with investment returns that stack up.

Using your organic waste, or feedstock we can source from elsewhere, your business can:

  • avoid transport costs and gate fees for waste disposal
  • avoid electricity costs (peak and off-peak)
  • avoid heating and gas costs
  • power vehicles and equipment with upgraded biogas
  • monetise valuable carbon credits under the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Futures Scheme.
  • monetise surplus electricity and gas fed into the grid
  • generate biofertiliser for use onsite or for sale

Rolling Out Bioenergy For Australia's Food, Resources And Waste Industry.

Delorean Corporation’s Engineering Division is a bioenergy enterprise taking the lead in bringing commercially viable anaerobic digestion plants to the Australian and New Zealand commercial, manufacturing and resources industries. Commerce and industry demands certainty, and we only focus on proven, mature technology which has been standardised through use in the Northern Hemisphere where anaerobic digestion is already widely integrated into industry.

Our initial bioenergy plant with a 2-megawatt capacity, has been commissioned for over 5 years and is based at Richgro Garden Products. It has been its principle metropolitan composting and manufacturing operations south of Perth in Western Australia.

Delorean has two other construction projects under way in Australia and New Zealand for third party customers.

Reduce Your Capex And Fastrack Your Return.

Our engineering division projects qualify for a range of State Government Grants, Australian Government Grants and renewable energy finance via the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC).

We have a track record in supporting project developers in securing grant funding.   We are also able to consider developing and funding the project on your behalf through Delorean Corporation or a joint development and funding model. 

Delorean’s Engineering Division can guide your grant or finance application in support of a bioenergy plant that will reduce your energy costs and generate valuable new income streams. Contact us with your enquiry.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of waste can be used in an anaerobic digestion plant?

Most organic waste from commercial food, agricultural or manufacturing operations can be used to generate energy. This includes supermarket, kitchen, dairy, vegetable, abattoir and fishery waste, to grain and legume surplus, to ordinary garden waste. Biogas yields are dependant on the type of feedstock available and the mix of feedstocks used in the fermenter.

Is this high tech or 'bleeding edge' technology?

No. Anaerobic digestion has been around for years but in the last 20 years the efficiency of the technology has been improved through adoption by Northern Hemisphere manufacturing and agricultural industries. More than fifty new plants are built in Germany every month. Its use is new to Australian industry, outside of some existing public sector municipal waste and wastewater treatment plants.

What are the benefits of putting in a plant?

The main benefits are avoided business operation costs, and generation new income streams. These include:

  • avoided transport costs and gate fees for waste disposal
  • avoided electricity costs (peak and off-peak)
  • avoided heating costs
  • powering vehicles and equipment with upgraded biogas
  • monetising valuable carbon credits under the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Futures Scheme.
  • monetising surplus electricity fed into the grid.

How big does the plant need to be?

This depends on how much organic waste you have available and what your energy requirements or other business objectives are. Plant size can scale from a micro plant servicing 1000 tonnes of waste per annum, to 125,000 tonnes plus per annum. Our experience is that plants become economic above 10,000 tonnes per annum of waste.

Our operation doesn't produce organic waste but we have an imperative for renewable energy to avoid energy costs and to offset out carbon footprint. Is anaerobic digestion a viable bioenergy solution in thus case?

It can be. Through our associated development company, Delorean Energy (deloreanenergy.com.au),  we can potentially aggregate and supply the waste stream to support your plant, and we can take away the digestate by-product for recycled into usable products. Your business is free to use the energy from the plant and claim carbon credits if appropriate.
