Waste? Make Money, Save Money


Waste? Make Money, Save Money

The term ‘bio economy’ is being referenced across the globe, but what does it mean? Why is it important? How can we capitalise on the opportunities within the bio economy in the Limestone Coast region?

The bio economy is exciting and in broad terms comprises those parts of the economy that use renewable resources from the land and sea – such as crops, forests, fish and animals – to produce food, materials and energy. For regional areas, it offers the chance to create new value chains between sectors, revitalise rural and coastal areas and disused industrial sites and provide regional growth and jobs.


To address these issues, and unearth the full spectrum of bio economy topics, Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALC), in partnership with The Department of Industry Innovation and Science, Office of Green Industries South Australia and the Limestone Coast Local Government Association (LCLGA) held an event bringing together leaders in bio based sector, with regional business and government organisations.
