We work with industry, government and research institutions to:
- drive innovation in design and production of products made from recovered resources
- build strong markets for recycled materials
- stimulate the development of new recycled products
- build confidence in the sector.

Research and development
Investment in research and development can result in an increase in alternative uses for recovered resources in new or existing products. Support and collaboration between research institutes, government and industry supports market stimulation for the use of recovered resources.

Research and development facilitated by Sustainability Victoria has resulted in, and continues to influence, specification and standard changes, particularly in road construction.
Recycled materials in pavement
Road construction across Victoria provides a significant opportunity to increase the use of recovered resources to replace virgin quarried materials.
Research and development supported by SV has led to the inclusion of recycled content in road and footpath construction.
