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 (PDF icon 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.

Expressions of interest have closed.

Successful projects will be announced once assessments have been completed.

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.
