Wealth from Waste

Wealth From Waste Research Cluster

CSIRO Research Collaboration Cluster

Wealth from Waste is a 3-year research program that aims to identify viable options for the recycling of metals from existing products in Australia.

Teams drawn from different universities and disciplines will undertake four distinct but interconnected research programs that draws academics from a range of disciplines to develop a better understanding of this complex landscape and the possible pathways for change. An international review panel of 12 industry, government and research organisations has been established to help guide the direction of the work and provide expert review.

The Wealth from Waste Cluster will run from 2013-2016, and will be seeking input from industry, research, government, community and other stakeholders at different times over this period.

The Wealth from Waste Cluster is funded, primarily, by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industry Research Organisation (CSIRO) Flagship Collaboration Fund, and represents significant additional investments by partner universities, including the University of Technology, Sydney, Monash University, the University of Queensland, Swinburne University, and Yale University (USA).
