What is a smart cell® and how does it work?

smart cells® are a sophisticated, highly engineered alternative to traditional landfill, using specialised technology to capture and convert biogas generated by waste into renewable energy to power Australian homes and businesses.

Each year, our smart cells® produce enough electricity to power more than 47,000 homes, making them Australia’s largest producer of biogas for the production of renewable energy.

smart cells® work just like a giant battery, storing resources for future energy use. They put non-recoverable waste to good use, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and delivering a renewable energy source to replace non-renewable fossil fuels for nearby homes and businesses. 

Our smart cells® utilise specialised liner systems designed to secure waste and to protect local environment and wildlife. We prevent off-site gas migration and minimise odour emissions in accordance with the Environmental Protection Licence that governs site operations.
