Barwon Water is partnering with major businesses and local councils on two Renewable Organics Network (RON). These projects will leverage existing water and sewerage infrastructure to reduce the organic waste that currently goes to landfill, create clean renewable energy, reduce costs, generate jobs and drive economic growth in the region.

Involved alongside Barwon Water are the five councils within the G21 region - City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Colac Otway Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe and Golden Plains Shire – as well as neighbouring Wyndham City Council and major export manufacturers.

This Australian-first project in Colac aims to not only convert organic municipal, commercial and sewerage waste to dispatchable renewable energy but also recycle the waste into value add by-products such as soil enhancers for agricultural purposes.
