The Victorian Government is reducing waste by the design and development of new ways to use recycled materials in everyday products.
Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio announced more than $2.1 million in grants for projects that develop new uses for recycled materials.
Ten research institutes will share $2.1 million in funding from Recycling Victoria Research and Development Fund to create new products that can use recycled materials including plastic, paper, glass, cardboard and tyres.
Collectively the projects will fund nine new dedicated research roles and partially fund six existing positions, enabling industry to work with researchers to develop new ways to use recycled materials in products and infrastructure such as roads and residential housing.
