Baiada Poultry running on biogas

Poultry manufacturer Baiada Poultry is to apply circular industry principles to both its Tamworth and Newcastle, New South Wales operations with plans to recover Biogas produced from its wastewater recovery systems.

This follows in the footsteps of the company’s Griffith facility which reduced its carbon footprint while simultaneously transforming what was once considered waste into a valuable energy source.

Baiada, which is one of the country’s largest integrated poultry breeders and meat products producers, took to social media to say the move was part of its ‘continued approach to sustainability and our progression in driving a circular economy business model’.

“Both our Newcastle and Tamworth sites are on track to be commissioned by November of this year.

“This milestone will mark another significant step towards our goal of achieving sustainable operations across all our facilities.

“By leveraging the power of Biogas recovery, we are set to achieve an expected carbon footprint reduction of 8,837 tonnes per annum, including our Griffith facility.”

Baiada said its committment began at the highest executive levels with the formulation and issue of an Environment and Sustainability Policy.

This included the development and implementation of an Environmental Management System that is certified to AS/NSZ/ISO 14001 Standard across all major company-owned sites, and becoming a signatory to the National Packaging Covenant.

Baiada said: “As we continue to prioritise sustainability and explore innovative solutions, we remain steadfast in our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and creating a positive difference in the communities we serve.”
