According to a November 9, 2020 Australia Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) news release, CSIRO “… has announced partnerships with Microsoft, Hobart City Council, and Chemistry Australia to address — and attempt to end — Australia’s plastics waste issue … CSIRO will work with its partners to develop new solutions that use artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and camera sensors for plastics detection and waste monitoring in waterways … the goal would be to apply technology to the entire plastics supply chain to eliminate rubbish ending up in the environment … CSIRO said it would commit at least AU$100 million annually to the co-creation of missions under the plan …” – The web link to the news release is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at #CSIRO #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic
