Finite to Infinite: Accelerating Avenues for Valuable Materials in E-waste
Seminar Program Theatre 2
Electronic and technology waste is rapidly becoming one of the fastest growing waste streams globally. In this session experts discuss and unlock the reality of the scale of e-waste in Australia and the true potential of transforming this waste to value. How do we currently view and treat end-of-life electronics? Who is responsible for ensuring these don't end up in landfill? What role does end-of life product design play in this? And are there ways to make this economically viable? Our panel answer these questions and explore the challenges, opportunities and real-life examples of practical implementation to accelerate this sector forward.
