Applications for the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s industrial ecology grant program, Circulate, are now open until the 12th of February 2021.
Individual grants are available from $20,000 up to $150,000 for business, not for profit organisations, government agencies, industry bodies and product stewardship groups. The Circulate Industrial Ecology Program supports projects that will recover materials that would otherwise be sent to landfill, and divert them for other industrial, construction or commercial processes.
These grants are offered to support projects that will apply industrial ecology principles. Successful recipients will develop synergies with other industries to identify and drive the diversion of construction and demolition (C&D) waste and commercial and industrial (C&I) waste.
Circulate has contributed to 39 projects since 2013, totalling in over $5.6 million of funding and diverting more than 75,000 tonnes of C&I and C&D from landfill.
