WA Govt invests $1m in funding to strengthen e-waste management
Technology Decisions, Other, 25/01/2021
The WA Government has invested $1 million in nine initiatives which, when fully implemented, will divert approximately 1000 tonnes of e-waste annually from landfill in Western Australia. Funded by the New Industries Fund, the WasteSorted e-Waste grants program supports the WA Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 objectives to avoid waste, recover more value and resources from waste, and protect the environment from the impacts of waste. […] Combined funding of $600,000 was allocated to Curtin University, CSIRO and Epichem for research and development programs that will support new and innovative solutions to process collected e-waste and reduce the amount of e-waste ending up in landfill.
