ATSE: Technology Readiness in Waste & Resource Recovery
27 April 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Increased recycling of plastics by sensing and treating label contamination
Co-hosted by ATSE and the NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) this live-streamed event brings together a world-leading team of research and industry partners to tackle the key problems in the way of greater recycling rates in Australia.
Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, Gabrielle Upton MP opens the event.
This work coincides with our report Towards a Waste Free Future.
The NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) has brought together four research universities with major Australian companies to develop novel solutions for sensing and treating residual contaminants on high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic chips.
The project, led by PEGRAS Asia Pacific, has received funding through the Federal Government’s CRC-P Grants program.
This seminar explores current research and development work being undertaken to tackle the challenges and to explore future directions.
