“Ai Group welcomes today’s release of the Recycling and Clean Energy National Manufacturing Priority road map. Waste, clean energy and circular economy remain areas of critical importance for Australia and are vital for Australia’s successful transition to net zero emissions,” Innes Willox, Chief Executive of the national employer association Ai Group, said today.
“Australians generate almost 3 tonnes of waste per person per year and are one of the highest greenhouse gas emitters in the world, on a per capita basis.
“Generation (manufacture) of clean energy and the re-manufacturing of waste are valuable export opportunities for Australian manufacturing over the next decade.
“This road map helps to address the ongoing gaps between the price of virgin materials and the cost of recovered materials,” Mr. Willox said.
