MEMBER for Page Janelle Saffin announced a $1 million grant for the Harwood Sugar Mill yesterday.

"The grants are part of the Australian Government's Clean Technology Food and Foundries Program," said Ms Saffin.

"For the NSW Sugar Milling Co-Operative Limited at Harwood, there is a grant of $1,004,253 for a $3 million project expected to improve the efficiency of the sugar mill boiler, and cut carbon emissions by 53 per cent and result in savings of $660,000 in energy costs per year."

"The Co-Operative is investing more than $2 million in the project.

"I am so pleased to see such significant local operations investing in a clean energy future. It's a win for business, the economy and the environment.

"The Clean Technology Investment Programs are about helping local manufacturers improve energy efficiency, reduce power bills, improve competitiveness and cut carbon pollution.

"These programs are an important part of the Australian Government's plan for a clean energy future and I encourage more local manufacturers to apply for support under the programs."
