Green Industries SA (GISA) is supporting the development of South Australia’s circular economy through its Recycling Infrastructure Grants (RIG) and Circular Economy Market Development Grants (CEMDG) programs.

More than $950k in grant funding has been awarded to 11 businesses under the RIG program, unlocking a total value of more than $2.6m and supporting 32 new full-time positions.

The funded projects range from the upgrade of a waste transfer station, to improved facilities for food rescue, and to the upgrade of composting equipment.

And a further $325k has been awarded to 8 businesses under the CEMDG program, for projects ranging from a disposable nappy recycling trial to a study on the expansion of a battery recycling facility.

These projects will help to facilitate South Australia’s transition to a more circular economy.
