Costa Georgiadis was the opening speaker for a strategic forum (“Accelerating the circular economy with recycled organics”) organised by CORE that attracted over 30 people in attendance at Townsville. Other speakers at the forum included Councillor Liam Mooney (Townsville City Council), Celia Luck (QLD Department of Environment and Science), Hayley Page (Townsville City Council), Jelenko Dragisic (CORE Representative) and Chris Rochfort (CEO of CORE).
CORE participated in this year’s annual conference of the California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) which ran from 24th October to 26th October 2022 in Palm Springs, California.
The conference offered a unique opportunity to interact with professionals in the stormwater field. Each year the conference draws leading members of the stormwater community including local, state, and federal decision makers, stormwater program coordinators, contractors, consultants, engineers, lawyers, scientists, and planners.

In response to continued efforts needed to restore The Great Barrier Reef, CORE is working with local members and stakeholders to implement the “Sustainable Amendments For Agriculture (SAFA)” Program with farmers on the Great Barrier Reef. CORE will adapt the program to include wider circular economy initiatives as well as working with the Fintech industry to support farmer efforts. CORE will also work with the major urban centres located within the Reef to look at ways to reduce urban impacts. The program is expected to commence towards the end of 2022.

CORE is a collaborating partner with AGPATH (www.agpath.com.au) on a Sustainability Victoria research project to determine the odour effects of using FOGO in on-farm composting applications. The project will also provide valuable input and guidance into how FOGO based compost can be used in agricultural applications.
CORE is assisting members who are export ready as a part of a three-year program of the Export Market Development Grant (EMDG).

CORE is participating in the 2018 Ecomondo Circular Economy Expo that is held in Rimini, Italy during 6th November to 9th November 2018. It is an international event with an innovative format that brings together all sectors of the circular economy in a single platform: from material and energy recovery to sustainable development.
CORE has been selected as the finalist in the “Circular Economy Award” category of the 2018 Inside Waste Awards.

Ever wondered where your kerbside collected garden organics go? Chances are it could be contributing to keeping Sydney Harbour’s water safe from toxic pollutants. CORE members have provided organic bio-filters that now “ring” Sydney Harbour and its tributaries from Manly to Annandale (installed in 1998) through Redfern and Sydney and around to Rose Bay. Bio-Filters are used in a range of stormwater treatment systems such as rain gardens, bio-swales and detention basins that are installed in streetscapes, parks and reserves.
