On 18 May 2023, Hub Leader Prof Veena will deliver a keynote speech at the Australian Banana Industry Congress 2023.
Veena will share information about plastic waste research and how innovative recycling methods and collaborative research hubs can help build a circular economy and deliver greater sustainability.
She will talk about her vision for a sustainable future, the need to create sustainable materials and products from waste, and helping to create more sustainable communities.
Event hosts say:
"The Australian Banana Industry Congress will bring together more than 450 members of the industry including banana growers, researchers, representatives from the supply chain and retailers, as a host of other key groups critical to the Australian banana industry ecosystem."
"The Congress will share information about plastic waste research and how innovative recycling methods can help build a circular economy and deliver greater sustainability."
"Held every two years, Congress is a unique chance for all those involved in producing the nation’s most-loved fruit to network, share ideas and be brought up-to-date with latest cutting edge technology, innovation and essential research and developments affecting industry."
"The 15th Congress is returning to the Cairns Convention Centre and the Pullman Cairns Reef Casino hotel, which will be transformed into ‘Banana Central’ over the two-and-a-half days of the event."
