Invest in resource recovery

Victoria is aiming to grow resource recovery in the state, generating up to $5 billion in opportunities for infrastructure investment by 2044. This equates to $120-167 million in annual investment opportunities in financing technology, infrastructure and expertise to significantly improve Victoria’s resource recovery.

Victoria leads Australia in the development of its waste and resource recovery sector.

We generate a quarter of Australia’s waste and this is expected to grow substantially over the next 30 years.
