In line with our commitment to build a lower-carbon future, we are pursuing a number of initiatives to offset emissions. Carnarvon Energy is actively reducing emissions by investing in biodiverse reforestation offsets generated in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor. 

These trees represent a tangible demonstration of our commitment to the environment, and our partnership with Carbon Neutral allows us to actively support this vital regenerative work.

Carnarvon initially purchased 6000 trees in 2019 and 2020 as part of the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor reforestation project. 

Starting in 2008, the corridor project has expanded to cover 18,000 hectares through the northern Wheatbelt and has been independently found to contribute significant biodiversity and regional economic impact value.

Carnarvon Energy is accelerating the pathway towards net zero emissions through innovation, partnerships and investment in emerging technologies.

It established FutureEnergy Australia (FEA) in 2021 through a 50:50 joint venture with climate solutions advisory Frontier Impact Group. 

FEA is proposing to build Australia’s first commercial-scale renewable diesel production facility, with an initial capacity of about 18 million litres of renewable diesel per annum.

The Narrogin project is the first step towards Carnarvon’s overall goal of being involved in the development of production capacity 500 million litres of renewable fuels per year by 2030. This target is not only help decarbonise fuel production but creating significant economic

Renewable diesel offers an immediate solution to lower emissions across a raft of sectors – including mining, agriculture, transport and power generation – acting as a drop-in replacement to fossil diesel and requiring no modifications to existing fleets and equipment. 

It also has potential to be processed into sustainable aviation fuel, a high demand fuel crucial to decarbonising the aviation sector in the near-term. 

Renewable diesel will be produced from sustainably sourced biomass including rotation harvest trees, waste products from forestry, crop residues and other inputs 

FEA’s technology utilises a high-temperature pyrolysis process in the absence of oxygen to produce syngas, which is then further processed and distilled to produce renewable diesel.

The Narrogin site also has optionality to expand and add additional production modules and develop sustainable aviation fuel and graphene refining capability in the future.
