South Australian Experience

The state of South Australia is a shining light in Australia’s circular economy. It continues to lead the nation with initiatives such as container deposit legislation; bans on single use plastic bags; high-performance kerbside waste collection/recycling systems; wastewater reuse and recycling; industrial resource efficiency; collections of hazardous waste; wind and solar energy development; and stormwater harvesting.

EVENT INFO AND SCHEDULE

Victoria can learn from South Australia’s boldness. The program is an eye opener showing how the interaction between industry, government and the community is driving change in the circular economy.

Partner with Circular360

Circular350 – The Global Centre of Excellence in Circular Economy is a partner-led organisation. We work with you to co-design circular economy programs that leverage international collaboration and funding opportunities.

Join us as we build a robust collaborative platform that brings together and leverages our collective intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of our communities, environment and economy.

Why does Circular360 exist?

The global circularity gap is widening. According to the 2020 Circularity Gap Report:

0
%of the global economy was circular two years ago

0
%

is circulartoday; we are going in the wrong direction

We are facing a crisis; billions of dollars of materials are going to waste in electronics, plastics, food and clothing alone.

Conducting “business as usual” is no longer an option – transitioning to the circular economy is a matter of necessity. A circular economy not only addresses the volume of waste created; it creates material to reuse at the point of production.

Creating a truly circular economy will enable future resource security, protect the environment and create a tremendous financial opportunity, as expressed in the 2020 Circularity Gap Report.

The circular economy is still in its infancy globally. To create an impact at the scale that is needed to change our fundamental economic model, we need active collaboration between government, large business, research and education with a strong emphasis on delivering tangible projects.

Vision

To be a leading global centre that focusses on high impact practical solutions that contribute towards a sustainable society that works within the finite resources and carrying capacity of our planet.

Approach

Our approach to accelerating the adoption of the Circular Economy principles worldwide is to build a robust collaborative platform that brings together and leverages the collective intellectual and financial capital to drive circular economy programs of significant scale, impact and visibility.

Philosophy

Our work is underpinned by our core philosophy that in order to deliver holistic, preventative and long-term solutions, we need an ecosystem that involves multiple stakeholders covering policy, enforcement, technology, education, economics, and innovation.

Philosophy

Circular360 promotes understanding and adoption of the Circular Economy principles by:

We believe that for things to change, both a top-down and bottom-up approach is needed. The human element is crucial for success and for that the circular economy has to come out of conferences, classrooms and boardrooms to the wider community. For the community to adopt a circular economy, it will need to be demystified and made real and relevant.

ORGANIC PROCESSING

Jeffries Group

The Jeffries Group state of the art composting facility in northern Adelaide uses locally developed technology including the custom designed Recycled Organics Screening System to help South Australia maintain the state’s nation-leading role in reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfill.

Peats Soils and Garden Supplies

Peats Soils and Garden Supplies transforms organic waste from industry and kerbside collection into high value products for Adelaide’s food and wine industry through composting and anaerobic digestion. BioBiN® is an on-site capture and containment system used for organic material processing.

sustainable water managment

SA Water

South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent. The necessity to conserve water has driven the state to become a global leader in wastewater reuse and recycling. SA Water’s Bolivar-Virginia Pipeline Scheme is a successful wastewater reuse project comprising a 142km network supplying Class A recycled water from the Bolivar sewage treatment works to the Adelaide Plains for use in irrigated agriculture and horticulture. The Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme (NAIS) will increase production of recycled irrigation water by 60%, providing up to 20GL of treated, climate and season independent water to the farm gate, from 2019. This will help achieve growth in agricultural industries through increased access to water resources.

Salisbury Water

Salisbury Water’s Parafield stormwater harvesting, storage and reuse scheme is one of the world’s largest urban stormwater capture, reuse and aquifer recharge schemes, supplying recycled non-potable water to industries, households and parks and gardens.

renewable energy

South Australia has world-class renewable energy sources including wind, solar, geothermal, wave and pumped hydroelectric. 68% of the state’s energy comes from renewable resources and this figure is targeted to reach 100% by 2028. Focus areas include:

The Global Centre of Excellence in Circular Economy

What is Circular360?

Circular360 – The Global Centre of Excellence in Circular Economy is a not-for-profit organisation, registered in Australia, specialising in co-designing programs with our partners.

The Centre of Excellence acts as a change agent, knowledge partner, an impact agency, solution broker and collaborative platform that brings together governments, the private sector, financial institutions, civil society, intergovernmental bodies and knowledge institutions.

Together, we will play an important role in accelerating the adoption of the circular economy, enacting practical solutions and acting as leaders in academia, industry, government and international communities.

What is the circular economy?

The circular economy is one that is restorative and regenerative by design and aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value, decoupling global economic development from finite resource consumption.

The focus is to design out waste. The products of today are also the raw materials of tomorrow. The concept of the circular economy is universally applicable across all sectors: it pervades everything we do, everything we make and everything we use. The circular economy is based on five key principles:

What can the circular economy do for your organisation?

There are vast, long-term benefits to be gained for businesses, governments and not-for-profit organisations:

Obtaining the maximum value from products during use and after their service life via recovery and regeneration of their components can reduce sourcing costs and lowers business risk.

Generating income by selling the by-products of waste regeneration, extending product life via refurbishment, remanufacturing and repair, leasing and “return and refill” services.

Businesses can reduce their reliance on expensive raw materials and can shorten supply chains and transport costs through local material production.

Fostering longer-term relationships by providing products with longer useful lives, a lower environmental footprint, and fewer toxic ingredients and components.

Ensuring business success well into the future by securing circular material supply chains and avoiding resource scarcity.

Using circular economy principles represents a tangible commitment to protecting the health of our citizens, the livability of our cities and regions, and our natural environment.
