In 2014, MSM Milling built and commissioned a new Feed Mill to value add to canola meal pressed on-site. The plant produces high quality and high protein stockfeeds for local and international markets. In 2019, MSM Milling commissioned a multi-million dollar cornerstone project for the Australian food processing industry, making it the country’s first low carbon canola oil producer.
A state-of-the-art $5.38 million biomass-fuelled boiler was funded by the 100% Australian family owned company, in conjunction with a $2-million grant from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), under the Advancing Renewables Program.
The project involved the installation of a 4.88MW boiler, which is fuelled by locally sourced renewable wood waste, forestry thinnings, offcuts and sawmill by-products, to generate the steam needed for the canola processing operation.
The biomass boiler replaces three LPG boilers, with the vast majority of heat and steam requirements now coming from renewables. MSM Milling's commitment to sustainability and adoption of renewable energy, helps ensure the future of the business, and is in line with consumers’ demands for environmentally friendly products, production, supply chains and businesses.
