Designing a Best Practice Model of Integrated Biosystems of Waste re-use in a Typical Rural Town

This project aimed to demonstrate a significant scope for waste re-use by integrating the production and waste treatment processes of a group of collaborating firms. It focused on a 'case-study' firm in the Tamworth area. A mapping of the waste products of other businesses outside of the case study area formed part of the study.
