Australia ‘must invest more in waste reduction research’


Smarter strategy and design needed to meet national waste reduction goals, report says

Australia needs to invest in research to meet its national goals for waste reduction and recovery, according to a report from the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering.

The academy has called for the creation of a Cooperative Research Centre for advanced materials development to help the country reach its 2030 targets.
