In 2019, CSIRO was tasked to lead the development of a Circular Economy Roadmap. This project reviews four materials that are common waste streams in our economy: plastics, tyres (automotive and mining), glass and paper. The roadmap has a focus on innovation and brings together industry stakeholders to explore circular economy opportunities for Australia.
The roadmap identifies opportunities across the whole supply chain of how waste can be avoided, and materials can be re-used or recycled. In doing so, it identifies new technologies, products, services and industries that can emerge from taking on a circular economy approach.
