The intention of WMRR’s new Resource Recovery and Market Development working group is to provide a forum for users and producers of secondary resources to come together and develop the connections and projects that will expedite the injection of recovered resources into the circular economy.

The Board has nominated SA-based Mark Rawson, principal consultant and founder of Rawtec, to lead the formation of this exciting new working group, and WMRR is now inviting expressions of interest from members who are keen to get involved. Ideally, we would like to see a similar approach to other working groups, with state-based groups that are across the specific details of their own jurisdictions, feeding up to a national group that helps to disseminate knowledge across the broader sector. Further details about the objectives of the Resource Recovery and Market Development working group can be found here, and details of how to get involved can be obtained. For more information please also see Terms of Reference.

Working groups are open to members only. For participation in the working groups or further information such as working group factsheets and position papers please visit the membership portal .
