SESSION 9: FOCUS ON RECYCLING & REPURPOSING

    Business Forum 2017  | 

    The future of resource recovery – and the realisation of zero waste to landfill - lies well beyond recycling as we understand it today. In Australia, we currently recycle or compost just over half of the waste we generate. In the US, it’s 34%. Even world leaders, like Germany, are still sending 35%. of their waste to landfill. Only innovation and the active engagement of business and industry can close this gap. Much of today’s waste is too complex to be recycled using conventional processes that require separation into single materials. When we send waste to landfill we are squandering the vast wealth of elements, oxides and materials embedded within it – that our industries otherwise source from finite virgin resources. UNSW Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology is revolutionising recycling science to enable us to ‘mine’ the world’s landfills to produce cost-effective new, green (Grenew®) products, materials and resources. Like turning waste plastics into value-added filaments for 3D printers using their unique micro-factory model and transforming printed circuit boards into metal alloys (copper, tin) using their new thermal micronizing technology[i]. Nespresso is pursuing a goal of 100% sustainably sourced coffee and is supporting consumers to return their aluminium coffee pods. Pernod Ricard is committed to zero waste to landfill by 2020 and recyclable packaging. And, global waste managers, Veolia, are at the cutting edge of new technologies and process that are constantly expanding their recycling reach. This panel considers new waste solutions that deliver both economic and environmental benefits to drive change.
