Grants to help Wodonga businesses come clean
Wodonga Rendering will use its Clean Technology Investment Program grant to install a tri-generation project – designed to capture waste heat and turn it into heating, cooling and electricity.
The project will save the company about $760,000 a year in energy costs – money that can be invested back into the business.
Wodonga Rendering joins two local businesses sharing in almost $3 million worth of grants from the $1 billion program.
Mars Australia and Bruck Textiles will also receive funding to reduce energy costs, improve competitiveness and cut carbon pollution.
The partnerships will boost the local economy and support more than 1000 jobs in the region.
The Clean Technology Investment Programs are funded by revenue from the carbon price.
The $800 million Clean Technology Investment Program and the $200 million Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program support Australian manufacturers transition to cleaner, more energy efficient practices.
