The CANZ Composites Recycling and Reuse Sub-Group is working to form collaboration, knowledge and supply networks across NZ and internationally to enable recycling and reuse of composites materials in NZ.  

We aim to support the implementation of solutions for waste minimisation, recycling and reuse options amongst CANZ members.

The CANZ Zero Waste Pathway was first presented at the CANZ 2020 Conference – this pathway informs our goals & action planning towards zero waste for our industry.


Next Members Event:

Monday 16th August.  2-3pm online

Guest Brian McMath from NZ Product Accelerator Program  https://www.nzproductaccelerator.co.nz/

The CANZ Reuse & Recycling committee have asked Brian to talk about program vision and any examples of project types that might relate to the composites industry, increasing sustainability or reducing waste. As part of his talk he will be explaining the process for how CANZ and member organizations could engage with the NZ product accelerator team, & if there is any funding etc.
