Quarry sector provides pillars of sustainability

The quarry sector can make an important contribution to Victoria’s environment by sustainably developing resources and providing recycled products for use in construction.

To meet the construction and infrastructure needs of a growing population, demand for sand, stone and gravel is expected to top more than 100 million tonnes per year by 2050.

Materials such as glass, bottles and tyres can potentially be used as a substitute for these materials.
