ResiLoop is an initiative of ARFA to research and design an Australian resilient flooring product stewardship scheme. The project received funding from the Australian Government through the National Product Stewardship Investment Fund.
DRIVING A CIRCULARITY MINDSET
Resilient flooring in Australia contributes an estimated 60,000 tonnes of waste each year to landfill, 9,000 tonnes of which has never even been walked on!
ResiLoop is being designed as part of the local industry's pathway to a circular economy, by tackling this waste issue, starting with waste generated during the installation process.
The initiative has been engaging participants across the resilient flooring supply chain, has undertaken research, business modelling and conducted recycling and reverse logistics field trials to test and refine various approaches in both residential and commercial sectors. This work informed the design and development of a national scheme that demonstrates a strong product stewardship approach in Australia.
