Queensland Waste to Biofutures Fund
The Queensland Waste to Biofutures (W2B) Fund provides $5 million in 2019 to support the development of waste to biofutures projects in Queensland. The fund is aligned with the Advance Queensland Biofutures 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan ( 1.2 MB), and provides targeted grants for pilot and demonstration or commercially scalable projects in Queensland that use conventional waste streams or biomass to produce bioenergy, biofuels and high-value bioproducts.
This program is now closed to new applications.
Two funding pathways, one objective
Dollar-for-dollar grants of between $50,000 and $1 million are available towards eligible project costs under two funding pathways.
Pathway one – plant and equipment
Funding Pathway One helped existing biofutures projects purchase and install facilities and equipment.
This pathway provided up to 50% co-funding for the purchase and installation of plant and equipment for an existing or greenfield facility to produce bioenergy, biofuels and high-value bioproducts.
Pathway two - research collaboration
Funding Pathway Two supported research collaboration with the potential to accelerate the commercial readiness of a Queensland-based biofutures facility.
This pathway provided up to 50% co-funding for research collaboration projects that contribute to the commercial development and growth of Queensland’s biofutures industry.
