From 18-20 September 2023, Hub Leader, Professor Veena, was master of ceremonies for the 2023 ecologiQ Greener Infrastructure Conference.
Veena spoke about sustainability and the importance of using waste as a resource to achieve decarbonisation goals, including adopting new behaviours and recycling techniques and systems - like some of those of the Hub is looking at - to help create new circular economies.
She gave an overview of the Hub and its various projects including finding fit-for-purpose technological recycling and manufacturing solutions for regional and remote communities across Australia, and some of her MICROfactorieTM Technology innovations were demonstrated in a special display.
This 3-day event at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre brought together leaders in government, sustainability and infrastructure to explore how to accelerate our shift to a greener future.
The conference was hosted by the Victorian Government's ecologiQ program and presented a unique opportunity to learn about how greener materials are being integrated into transport infrastructure and how collaboration and innovation can take it to the next level.
