$16m Queensland biofuels pilot plant announced

The Brisbane Times reports (29.3.16) on the state government’s announcement of a pilot plant in central Queensland for processing and exporting biofuels.

‘Queensland has again defeated NSW because the state “wanted it more”, and this time the financial stakes are higher than State of Origin glory.

‘The state government has secured a $16 million biofuels pilot plant for Gladstone in central Queensland, despite the NSW-based company behind it, Southern Oil Refining, already having the facilities and plans to establish it in Wagga Wagga.

‘The change means Queensland is on the cusp of creating a lucrative large-scale biofuels industry, particularly if the Northern Oil Advanced Biofuels Pilot Plant is successful.’
