A living laboratory for the future of material reuse
The Shoalhaven Resource Learning and Research Centre is a new type of education facility focused on one of the most important questions of our time – how to better understand the opportunities for giving new life to our waste materials such that we start seriously reducing our carbon footprint and energy use more generally.
Sited at a regional waste processing centre with a large focus on optimisation of its waste material, the building is to be used as an education and research centre where school groups can come to build knowledge about the potential of material re-use and, most importantly, to be excited by the possibilities.
The ambition for the project is that the innovations it shows today inspire the leaders of tomorrow, such that in the not too distant future, what is now a radical project in material use becomes a standard approach.
