Government gives $2.8m in grants for process control equipment

The Rudd Government has given 13 Australian manufacturers a share of $2.8 million in grants to purchase process control equipment to make their plants run ‘greener’ as part of its Re-tooling for Climate Change program.

Food processing companies, brick and cement manufacturers and polyethylene plants are among the 13 companies to receive a grant in the Rudd Government’s Re-tooling for Climate Change program.

Re-tooling for Climate Change offers Australian manufacturers money as incentives to reduce their water use and greenhouse gas emissions in their production processes.

The $2.8 million provided by the Rudd Government will go towards instrumentation and process control products to perform water treatment, water re-use, process re-engineering, waste to energy conversion, and heat to energy conversion.

“This program is all about working in partnership with industry to support a sustainable manufacturing sector, now and into the future,” said the minister for innovation, industry, science and research, Senator Kim Carr.
