Since our inception, Bio Gro has been a leading innovator, working in partnership with Australian companies and councils to achieve optimal recovery of organic material.
The recovered material doesn’t just get dumped somewhere – out of sight, out of mind – to decompose on its own. We capture the full potential of the resource stream by professionally processing and composting the organic material into a variety of high quality and nutritious products tailored for a wide range of horticultural and agricultural applications.
Around 90% of greenhouse gas emissions from landfills are a result of decomposing organic material. Therefore, recovering organic material from the waste stream effectively reduces methane, which is a strong greenhouse gas and contributor to global warming.
The application of our products to soil also results in a wide range of important environmental benefits. These include improved soil health, water savings, improved crop productivity, reduced need for synthetic fertiliser, improved tilth, and importantly an enhanced ability to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon within soils.
In Australia, an additional 13 million tonnes of organic material per year could be diverted from landfill. Diverting just an additional 2 million tonnes would replace 10,000 tonnes of urea, 1,000 tonnes of phosphate and 5,000 tonnes of potassium sulphate, with the resulting yield improvements delivering another $39 million in farm revenue.
Additionally, it would increase turnover in the organics recovery industry by up to $500 million, avoid approximately 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions and sequester approximately 1 million tonnes of CO2 in soils.
