The Federal Government's $1 billion clean technology grants package, unveiled by Industry and Innovation Minister Greg Combet, aims to help manufacturers invest in energy efficient capital plant and equipment, and lower pollution technologies, processes and products.

The package allocates $800 million for general manufacturers who exceed defined annual energy consumption thresholds through the Clean Technology Investment Program. Another 200 million is available to food and beverage processors and foundry and metal forging manufacturers.

These grants provide an excellent opportunity for developers with manufacturing, forging or food and beverage focused clients.

Information sessions are being held as part of the launch of the Clean Technology Investment Program. For more information, please visit the AusIndustry website or contact the AusIndustry Hotline on 13 28 46 or email hotline@ausindustry.gov.au
