Presenters: Chris Smith, Territory Manager Victoria, Repeat Plastics Australia (Replas)
Sustainability is at the heart of our entire learning area, from the early years right through to VCE PD&T and Systems Engineering.
In P-10, students create design solutions for a sustainable future.
In VCE Systems, they develop systems engineering processes that improve environmental sustainability.
And in the new VCE PD&T , the circular economy and ethical product design are key concepts that underpin the entire study design.
Replas is an Australian company specialising in delivering sustainable recycled plastic products for built environments and public domain spaces.
Established in regional Victoria, Replas is built on innovative, leading-edge technologies developed by our team over 40 years, repurposing end-of-life plastic into durable products that can themselves be recycled, closing the loop for a truly circular outcome.
We're delighted to welcome Chris Smith from Replas who will present at this very special free event for our members. Chris will share the history of the company, the science behind working with recycled plastics and the innovative products they develop. He'll share why Replas is a fantastic example of the circular economy and the drive to eliminate plastic waste that we are lucky to have right her in our own back yard!
