Using recycled materials in infrastructure for Australia's future

by Australian Road Research Board on May 26, 2022

Infrastructure Australia

ARRB have teamed up with EY to deliver part of Infrastructure Australia’s next phase in the Market Capacity Program.

The Market Capacity Program provides a new evidence base for a comprehensive understanding of the supply and demand of the skills and materials critical to deliver Australia's major infrastructure pipeline.

ARRB’s work involves modelling the demand potential for recycled materials in road infrastructure, as well as understanding the market constraints and opportunities to increase the uptake of recycled materials.

To gain real world insights across the various recycled materials supply chains, ARRB and EY have engaged with over 300 industry and government stakeholders working in and in support of the recycled materials supply chain.

With an increase in the importance of using recycled materials in infrastructure projects, a circular economy has never been in higher demand.

The final report, which will be published by Infrastructure Australia later in the year, will include modelling the potential demand for recycled and replacement materials that could be used across Australia’s public infrastructure projects.
