Waste and Resource Strategy Summit

Eliminate landfill and transform waste into valuable products. Attend the Waste and Resource Strategy Summit in Sydney, Australia to learn more.

This year's summit explores improving waste infrastructure and overcoming e-waste strategies by leveraging technology. So this is your prime opportunity to hear about ISACYCLE™.

We are proud sponsors of this event and our team of  Ben Hogg and Tara Ryan are keen to talk about how the ISACYCLE™ can virtually eliminate landfill.

Ben will be presenting "Reducing Landfill and Transforming Residual Waste into Safe and Valuable Products" during the summit.

This presentation will explain how we've repurposed the world’s most flexible smelter, the ISASMELT™, into an ISACYCLE™, taking e-waste and transforming it into saleable commodities: a slag that’s safe for construction materials and recovered copper.

Read on for more information about Ben's presentation and how to get in contact with our Waste and Resource Strategy Summit 2023 team.




Eliminate Landfill and Transform Waste into Valuable Products with ISACYCLE™

Date: 30 March 2023
Time: 2.20pm

Language: English

Can we eliminate landfill and instead transform residual waste into saleable products?

Glencore Technology has shown it can be done.

By re-purposing the world’s most flexible smelter, the ISASMELT™, into an ISACYCLE™, they’ve taken e-waste and transformed it into saleable commodities: a slag that’s safe for construction materials and recovered copper.

And they’ve virtually eliminated landfill.

The ISACYCLE™ has been tested in Australia, proven in a pilot plant and is now available as a project in sizes that are suitable for both large and small waste treatment facilities.

Ben Hogg will discuss all this, and more, during his presentation at this year's Waste and Resource Strategy Summit.
