Opportunities for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity in the Australian Dairy Processing Sector
Opportunities for Reducing GHG Intensity FinalPDF, 1.59 MB
The Australian government has placed considerable pressure on manufacturing industry to increase its “energy productivity” as a component of Australia’s target for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emission Reduction targets of 5% to 2020 and 26 to 28% to 2030 from 2005 levels. The dairy processors have a significant role in achieving these targets primarily through energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy uptake. This study is intended to assist dairy processors in this task by providing information about emerging technologies that have potential to assist dairy processors in this pursuit of energy efficiency, renewable energy uptake and GHG emission intensity reduction.
