The UNSW SMaRT Centre has been operating a demonstration battery recycling MICROfactorieTM at the 2023 ecologiQ Greener Infrastructure Conference in Melbourne.
ecologiQ is a Victorian Government initiative to integrate recycled and reused content into every corner of Victoria’s $90 billion Big Build by incorporating waste products wherever possible, drawing a crucial connection between Victoria’s transport projects and the reform of Victoria’s recycling system.
This 3-day event at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre has been bringing together leaders in government, sustainability and infrastructure to explore how to accelerate our shift to a greener future. SMaRT Director Prof Veena has been Master of Ceremonies for the event.
The conference is hosted by the Victorian Government's ecologiQ program and presents a unique opportunity to learn about how greener materials are being integrated into transport infrastructure and how collaboration and innovation can take it to the next level.
