Event description


Waste should be burned to create energy, not buried. Ideas like these ignite the imaginations of Australians dreaming about reducing the impact of our waste, and of creating a circular economy. These ideas can come to life. Waste-to-energy technologies have come a long way in the last decade and public sentiment is Australia is warming to the idea of producing renewable energy from non-recyclable waste. With advancing technology and shifting norms come opportunities for new businesses to be formed.

Join us for a discussion on what startups might emerge in the waste-to-energy sector.

This is the second event in EnergyLab's two-part event series on startup opportunities in BioFutures, leading to a hackathon to generate BioFutures startup ideas. More information and hackathon registration below.
