New biogas company to set up in Fiji

A business is hoping to set up in Fiji to produce energy using biogas and help better the economy.
Called ‘Biogas and Bioenergy Fiji’ the company has already plans on having their headquarters in Suva.
Company works manager Ken Davey explains the advantages that Fiji has in the area of energy.
“Fiji hasn’t got traditional fossil fuel energy like coal or oil or gas but it’s wrong to say that Fiji doesn’t have its own energy. It has incredible energy wrapped up within its own biomass and Fiji’s ability to grow biomass and by extension produce waste biomass can lead to its energy independence and this can be achieved with a decade.”
Mr Davey says the company has already begun talks with the FEA.
“There’s a lot of scope to work with the FEA in using biogas as a home grown fuel to displace the use of imported diesel.”
He says the aim of the company is to see to the development of industrial scale biogas projects.
