Waste Away – The Future of Garbage: EPA’s 2018 National Science Week Panel
16 August 2018 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pmFree
EPA is celebrating National Science Week by hosting its third annual panel event. This year’s topic is Waste away – the future of garbage. EPA has gathered together a panel of experts to discuss the future of waste. Is it truly waste or is it a resource?
Waste has been a hot topic for Australia and Victoria over the last 18 months. Public debate has surrounded:
- How we can reduce our waste at home
- How business can assist in reducing waste, which has led to a plastic bag ban in Victoria and many bars banning plastic straws
- Waste stockpiling in Victoria
- China banning recycling imports
- How we can repurpose waste, such as waste to energy plants or using waste to make roads.
EPA has gathered together a panel of experts to discuss the future of waste. This is a unique opportunity to hear from our panel and to ask questions about waste opportunities and technologies. Is it truly waste or is it a resource? How can science be used to solve Australia’s waste problem?
Our panel includes:
- Ruby Chan, Inventor of ‘Moducware’
- Mark Glover, Director and CEO of Renewable Carbon
- Barry Sullivan, Business Development Manager, Renewables Downer Utilities Australia
- Dr Trevor Thornton, Lecturer, School of Life and Environmental Sciences, Deakin
The panel discussion will be directed by the questions posed by the audience, both live and web-stream.
