Willmott Forests to explore plantation waste biomass biofuel production

As part of a $60 million upgrade to their Bombala softwood processing facility Willmott Forests have indicated they will be exploring the possibility of using plantation waste to produce biofuel.

Willmott Forests has also won the right to explore with Forests NSW options to extract up to 70,000 tonnes per annum of biomass from plantation waste which may be used in applications such as power generation and biofuel.

Ethtec, a Willmott Forests subsidiary, is currently constructing a pilot plant for cellulosic ethanol production in Northern New South Wales (previous post). Should this be successful it isn’t hard to imagine Willmott Forests using the same technology in Bombala.
