Laurie Brosnan

Farmer, QLD

Farmer Laurie Brosnan, operates BettaPork piggery in Biloela, Queensland. The piggery uses a biogas plant to produce power for its operations. The two three million litre biogas tanks welcomes 120,000 litres of organic waste every day and expel the same amount as a valuable power source.
The biogas plant currently supplies 200kW worth of power – enough for a full night and a half day’s power demand for the entire farm including the entire family’s housing. The Brosnan’s aren’t content to stop here with a feasibility study underway to construct another generator to become fully self sufficient.
