This project will be a major step towards tackling the global problem of disposing waste plastics in an environmentally sustainable way, and will improve the efficiency of industrial operations, lowering costs and resource consumption.
Our advances will deliver the fundamental science that will enable the aluminium industry to consume substantial amounts of plastic waste, including plastics that are currently unsuitable for recycling. This technology is likely to make significant contributions towards the development of a sustainable recycling oriented society, to curb global warming, enhancing the international competitiveness of Australian aluminium manufacturing.
