Bioenergy Association congratulates Fonterra on its
commitment to reduce coal use
The Bioenergy Association
congratulates Fonterra on its commitment to reduce absolute
emissions by 30% by 2030, and transition towards net zero
emissions by 2050.
Brian Cox, Executive Officer, says
Fonterra is already trialling co-firing wood biomass in
existing coal boilers and the Co-op’s commitment to not
installing any new coal boilers from 2030 sends a strong
signal to the bioenergy industry. “Fonterra is a large
energy user and their intention to transition away from coal
will provide positive stimulus for the wood fuel supply
sector to meet fuel demand.”
