4th Australasian Industrial Ecology Conference returns to Sydney
Author: Ryan Collins
The aim of the 4th Australasian Industrial Ecology Conference is to showcase and promote leading examples of initiatives that pioneer the optimisation of material and energy flows within industry. In particular, how organic waste, consumer waste, packaging waste and more can be economically reutilised whilst embodying the ultimate Industrial Ecology goal of ‘zero waste'.
The conference series promotes the practice of industrial ecology (IE) in Australia generally. Each event provides a stimulating forum in which ideas and opportunities can be presented and discussed. Conference presentations are focussed on practical outcomes and solutions for managing business wastes - not just talking about it but actually doing something about it and simultaneously making/saving money.
