Victorian Biomass Residue Generation Estimates by LGA

Last updated: 16 September 2022

Victoria's generation of biomass residues have been modelled for the Australian Biomass for Bioenergy Assessment (ABBA) project. Funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) the project seek so to drive investment in bioenergy.

The data has been modelled based on ABS agricultural commodity data areas and production (Agricultural Census data), National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) databases, and data collected from SV Local Government Annual surveys. All datasets are available for information purposes only. No claim is made as to the accuracy or authenticity of the data at any time.

Data is updated as new ABS datasets, and information on individual commodity residue generation are made available.

For further information on individual biomass residues data and for overlays with other infrastructure, refer to the AREMI website.

How to refine the data


There are four filters on the dashboard: Product, Source, Waste and Resource Recovery Group region and Local Government Area.

The map also works as a filter and you can select any of the LGAs displayed on the map.

Hover over any of the charts or LGAs on the map to display details about the visuals.

Zoom in and out of the map by clicking on the magnifying glass symbols in the map or by scrolling on your mouse wheel.

If you have zoomed the image – you can move the map by clicking and holding down the left mouse key and moving the image.


  1. Select Product
    The amount (tonnes) of the selected product will be displayed for all Sources, LGAs and WRRG.
  2. Select Source
    The amount (tonnes) of all products for the selected source will be displayed for all LGAs and WRRG.
  3. Select WRRG
    The amount (tonnes) of products from all sources will be displayed for the selected WRRG and its LGAs.
  4. Select LGA
    The LGA can be selected from either the filter or the map. The amount (tonnes) of products from all sources will be displayed for the selected LGAs.
  5. Selecting More than one Product, Source, WRRG or LGA
    You can select more than one Product, Source, WRRG or LGA by holding down the Cntrl key and making multiple selections. The chart and top level results / cards will change based on your selection.
