The Circular Economy

This session will highlight circular economy practices and challenges, both in Australia and around the world.

A circular economy is a system aimed at encouraging sustainability through the continuous use of resources and reducing or eliminating waste. Business and industries around the world have adopted circular methods to achieve sustainable processes. There is also an increasing trend to national and regional policies on aspects of circularity, most recently in Australia. However, to achieve a truly sustainable circular economy requires market, industry, social, and policy innovation, and global progress to date has been slow.

The presentations will follow with a Q&A session for participants.

 

SPEAKERS:

Associate Professor Gavin Melles will discuss the origins of circular economy relative to sustainability, current policy and implementation. He will also draw on the contribution of recent circular design proposals and tools.

Dr Stacey Konash, will discuss different circular business models, focusing on re manufacturing: drivers, barriers and opportunities for R&D.
