Round 1

Announcement date: 15 July 2021

Five recommended projects received a total of $2.35 million to implement new circular economy business models, products, and services.

These projects will support Victorian businesses to reduce waste and extend the life and value of products and materials currently wasted. They are the next step in establishing a true circular economy in Victoria.

These projects will deliver new circular business models that:

  • prevent more than 36,000 tonnes of waste each year
  • deliver more than 27,000 tonnes of new recycling capacity.

These innovative business models will improve materials efficiency and deliver triple bottom line benefits to our environment, society and economy.
