Webinar series on waste as a resource

On 4 March 2022, Veena will deliver the first of a three-part series on 'waste to value' for the Victorian local government professionals association, LGPro.

She will be highlighting how and why waste is a resource, demonstrating some of the UNSW SMaRT Centre innovations that can transform a variety of wastes into valuable new products and feedstock for manufacturing.

Joined by SMaRT Centre researcher Dr Rumana Hossain, Veena will lead a discussion for the first webinar focusing on turning waste into value, from big picture sustainability through to the technical playbook on recycling materials that can be used in council infrastructure.

The webinars are for members of LGPro as part of their ongoing webinar series:

Webinar 1 - 4 March

Webinar 2 - 1 April

Webinar 3 - 29 April
