Event Details: 

Unprecedented expenditure on Australian infrastructure upgrades and construction projects continues to generate enormous quantities of construction and demolition (C&D) waste, posing both challenges and opportunities for Australia's waste management industry. How does Australia stack up against the rest of the world when it comes to efficient management of our C&D waste and incorporation of circular economy principles?

During this event, we will take a deep dive into the current state of affairs concerning Australian C&D waste management to understand the scale, actors and regulatory framework that characterises the industry.

Our speakers will explore the current state of knowledge and practice concerning C&D waste management in Australia and abroad, each providing unique perspectives on the challenges and opportunities presented by Australian C&D waste including how these might best be addressed to improve economic, financial and sustainability outcomes.
