Industrial Ecology Forum "Shifting the Australian Resources Paradigm", 28 March 2014, Sydney: Outcomes and Findings Report

Wealth from Waste Cluster' is a major 3-year (2013-2016) research collaboration that aims to identify economically viable options for the recycling of metals from existing products in Australia. It focuses on 'mining' above ground resources, namely metals contained in collections of discarded manufactured products and consumer goods. The University of Queensland's Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining leads one of the core research streams - Program 1 "Recycling Systems: Barriers and Opportunities for Industrial Ecology in Australia". The overall cluster project is led by the University of Technology, Sydney, and also includes Swinburne University of Technology, Monash University and the Center for Industrial Ecology at Yale University, along with an International Reference Panel of experts and CSIRO. The Industrial Ecology Forum is a part of Program 1 research activities, aimed to provide initial input for detailed investigation into barriers and enablers for higher uptake of leading practices in metal recycling in an Australian context.
