Circular economy centre of excellence slated for Adelaide

A new circular economy centre of excellence in Adelaide will work with businesses to commercialise new projects and innovations.

The centre, to be established at the Lot Fourteen innovation precinct in central Adelaide, will be administered by Circular360.

The South Australian State Government is investing $1 million over three years in the centre’s development.

State Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs said the centre reflected South Australia’s leadership internationally in green industry development, the circular economy, recycling and resource recovery.

“This centre makes SA the number one destination for businesses and government across the Asia-Pacific region to see the policy and practice of a circular economy in action,” he said.

Circular360 is a not-for-profit organisation whose other partnerships include working with the UN Centre for Regional Development, The World Bank, and the US Green Chamber of Commerce.
