Reports of an explosion at Biomass injuring worker

AN EMPLOYEE sustained injuries after an incident at Biomass Solution's Englands Rd waste processing facility this morning.

Fire and Rescue NSW responded to an automatic fire alarm and on arrival were informed a worker had been hurt.

The facility processes green and food waste into saleable compost products in an effort to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill under contract with Coffs Coast councils.

There are unconfirmed reports of an explosion at the site, however fire fighters are not currently involved in managing the incident.

Biomass Solutions declined to comment on the event.
