Webinar | Reconophalt: Waste stream reuse and sustainable solutions in the construction industry

EIANZ invites you to come and hear from the team behind Downer Group’s Reconophalt™, a high recycled content asphalt, paving the way to a more sustainable construction industry. Reconophalt™ is the first road surfacing material in Australia containing high recycled content derived from waste streams, such as soft plastics, glass and toner, which would otherwise be bound for landfills or stockpiled.

You will hear from the founder of the Close the Loop Group, the organisation responsible for recycled plastic recovery and reuse, and from Downer Group’s sustainability and development team managers.

Each of the speakers will share their knowledge about Reconophalt™, including how it is made, waste material sourcing, the innovation process, use, and the material's broader sustainability benefits. There will be time after the speaker’s presentations for Q&A from the audience.

Meet the Speakers:

  • Graham Henderson | Manager pre-contracts and development, Road Services at Downer Group
  • Steve Morriss | Founder, Close the Loop
  • Ross Brookshaw | Group Manager, Environment and Sustainability at Downer Group

This webinar will run on Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
This webinar will be recorded and a link to the recording will be sent to all registered attendees.
