Turning kerbside waste into renewable gas

Kerbside waste to renewable gas cycle
The food scrap waste from cooking your dinner, will in the future be used to cook your dinner and this short video shows you how!

Firstgas Group and Ecogas are working on New Zealand’s first large-scale biogas to pipeline project that will turn food scrap waste left out for kerbside collection, into a valuable source of renewable gas for homes and businesses.

Using proven overseas technology, this type of renewable gas could replace all of New Zealand’s residential, and three quarters of commercial gas use in the future, which is the equivalent to taking 415,000 petrol cars off our roads. Action that helps move New Zealand towards its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
