MRIWA portfolio overview – Increase Recovered Value Through Processing
Learn more about recently completed and current projects in the program area Increase Recovered Value Through Processing
Research activity within MRIWA’s research priority program area is intended to increase yield and throughput, optimising use of raw materials by breaking down operational silos and to accelerate the development and scale-up of new processing technologies.
As at 30 June 2020, the investment in the program is comprised of:
- MRIWA contribution $3m
- Third-party contribution $11.6m
- Total grant value $14.6m
