CSIRO event: Science engineering sustainable fibres

On 23 May 2022, Veena will deliver a keynote speech at the CSIRO event: Science engineering sustainable fibres for closing the loop in Australia.

People wanting to learn more will be able to view-on-demand Veena's talk and many others for up to a year via the CSIRO event webpage.

Veena's talk is entitled, 'A smart vision for a sustainable future: SMaRT technologies and MICROfactories™ creating sustainable materials and products from waste resources'. 

Event host information:

Humans depend on fibre – for clothing, and more. Sustainable fibres and textiles are a global priority for closing the loop on resource-flow and energy use. This is also a priority due to the impacts on the health and livelihoods of millions of people globally, and the lands and waters they depend on. In Australia there is now a growing shift towards more circular systems across several sectors and value chains. Science and technology are central to this change, with connected humans working together for positive solutions.

This collaborative symposium’s goal is to help accelerate Australia’s science and innovation towards sustainable circular fibres. The “Threads and Opportunities Symposium: science engineering sustainable fibres, for closing the loop in Australia” is cross-connecting, multidisciplinary, and catalytic in exploring science solutions to meet the challenge.
