Waste and waste management Australia

Waste and waste management Australia

New and efficient waste management technologies are in demand

The mountains of waste in Australia are getting bigger every year. The population is growing. And waste export has collapsed due to China's "National sword" campaign. Australia needs to take urgent action against waste. New and efficient technologies in waste management and the transformation from a linear economy to a circular economy are expected to do the trick. This has opened up new business and delivery opportunities for Swiss companies in Australia.

Australia has a waste problem. More than ever since the introduction of China's "National sword" campaign in 2018; the radical import ban on plastic waste has left Australia with additional quantities of waste. Consequently, the market for waste and waste management in Australia is changing. With an estimated value of CHF 12 billion - corresponding to 1 percent of Australian gross domestic product - and an annual growth of 9 percent, it offers many new opportunities.

From a linear economy to a circular economy
The transformation from a linear economy to a circular economy is in full flow. Clear guidelines are intended to support and expedite this process. All levels of government have been urged to develop more effective waste management methods. New technologies, processes and methods aimed at improved recovery, processing and recycling of waste will be the key to overcoming the waste problems. Plastics recycling, compared to the total quantity of plastic waste, is currently relatively low in Australia.
