Queensland Resource Recovery Industry Development Program (RRIDP)
This new program offer $100 million in funding and other support over three years to develop a high-value resource recovery industry for Queensland by diverting waste from landfill, reduce stockpiling, and using proven technologies to increase resource recovery for more valuable uses.
Projects can be to build new infrastructure or improve existing operations.
Businesses, local governments and not-for-profits can propose projects or form consortia for projects along the entire supply chain, from collection and transfer to sorting and remanufacture, plus waste to energy.
Three funding streams are designed to attract a mix of projects at different stages:
Stream 1 - Resource Recovery Grants Fund: Dollar-for-dollar
capital grants of between $50,000 and $5 million for infrastructure to enhance or build new waste recovery facilities or for capital investments in new processing and technological capabilities.
Stream 2 - Resource Recovery Project Fund: Broad incentives to attract or expand major resource recovery operations that will divert significant amounts of waste from landfill, reduce or prevent stockpiling and recover substantial resources.
Stream 3 - Resource recovery investment pipeline fund: Support toward capital intensive, long lifecycle projects that require a contribution towards investigations to assist with investment decisions for Queensland.
