The NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN), in partnership with Hunter Circular Economic Zone and HunterNet Cooperative, hosts the Innovation in the Circular Economy 2022 Conference, at Newcastle City Hall on 27-28 October.

This two-day conference will bring together stakeholders from across industry, universities and government to explore innovation in the circular economy.

Day 1 will focus on technological innovation, with experts from across the eight universities that comprise the NSSN examining solutions for complex problems in recycling.

The NSSN is pleased to partner with leading Australian electricity company, AGL, in delivering this conference. AGL is planning the redevelopment of the Liddell and Bayswater Power Station site, in the Upper Hunter region of NSW, into an integrated industrial energy hub. AGL is focusing on clean energy projects, energy intensive industry and related enterprise. Energy projects under investigation for the site and Hunter Region include hydrogen production, a grid scale battery, solar thermal storage, pumped hydro and a large-scale wind project. Potential complementary industry sectors include manufacturing, green chemicals, data, recycling and agri-food industries.

Discussion about the Liddell and Bayswater site will be the cornerstone of Day 2 of the conference.

Hunter Circular Economic Zone, HunterNet Co-operative and the NSW Smart Sensing Network have the combined vision to use cutting-edge science and technology to draw on the inherent geographic and logistical advantages of the Hunter and to harness the enthusiasm of a range of stakeholders to produce a roadmap for a profitable, sustainable, high employment precinct that can lead the world in the circular economy.
