Event: Waste Not, Want Not - the Materials in our Future Supply Chains, Wednesday 8 August 2018

With continued development placing ever-growing demands upon global resources, climate extremes putting traditional materials through their paces, innovation and technology changing what and how materials are used, and massive changes planned to the ways in which Australian recycling is undertaken, how can Australia’s construction and infrastructure sector learn, adapt and flourish?

  • Understand the key impacts and risks associated with current construction materials
  • Hear about how better materials choices make for better buildings and infrastructure
  • Learn more about the changing face of third-party product and material certification

  • Hear how Australia's recycling practices are changing, and what needs to change yet further
  • Understand the role of procurement in materials decisions for projects large and small
  • Challenge your perceptions of 'the materials of the future' with predictions of forthcoming trends
  • Question the panel about materials, products, recycling and waste.
