The latest renewable energy project in the Northern Rivers will be the first community funded biohub in Australia.

The Casino Biohub, to be located adjacent to the Casino sewage treatment plant, will transform organic waste and waste water into energy, clean water and other bio-products. Brisbane-based Utilitas Group, a biohub developer, has partnered with Domacom to raise $4.3 million to secure the site and develop the facility.
