Australia’s construction sector consumes over 700,000 tonnes of plastic waste each year, but now an Australian manufacturer of building panels is looking at ways to recycle it. National manufacturer Bondor®, together with Pipemakers Australia, will work with M Modular and the University of Melbourne to boost the local recycling of plastic waste and improve the productivity of Australia’s construction industry. The project Recycling Plastic Waste for Manufacturing Prefabricated Building Components is expected to cost $8.76 million in total and run until mid-2023. The $2.7 million grant was funded as part of round eight of the Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-Ps). Insteel Australia, vol. 33, no. 2, pp. 32-35.
