Event hosts information: panel discussion theme

"With some 27 million tonnes of construction and demolition waste generated in 2018-2019, there is significant opportunity to address CE Principle 2 - Keep products and materials in use through material recovery and recycling. But what tools are available to address other CE Principles - design out waste and pollution, and regenerating natural systems?

"In this session, Planet Ark’s Australian Circular Economy Hub invites experts to share insights into the opportunities that exist for recovered materials to make their way into design, increasing materials value, and importantly increasing savings and reducing virgin material consumption."
