Landfill Gas Industries has won the race to build Brisbane City Council's new waste-to-energy generation plant. The company has been given the go ahead to construct the facility at 369 Sherbrooke Rd, Willawong. The company will operate the plant with Diamond Energy for at least the next 10 years. Landfill Gas Industries beat AGL Energy Services , Landfill Gas and Power, LMS Generation and Integrated Waste Resources to win the tender, after the council called for expressions of interest in November last year.

The plant will be on a remediated landfill site that closed in the 1990s. The site has an underground well and piped gas harvesting systems already in place to release methane gas created by the landfill. It currently has a flare burning methane gas. The Landfill Gas development will be the second renewable energy facility for Brisbane, with the Rochedale landfill waste-to-energy facility generating power since 2004.
