The Centre for Integrated Biowaste Research (CIBR) is dedicated to finding sustainable reuse options for New Zealand's biowaste.
The CIBR is a formal partnership between ESR, Scion, Landcare Research and Cawthron Institute. Other collaborators are Lowe Environmental Impact, Lincoln University, Northcott Research Consultants, and Kukupa Research.
WHAT WE CAN DO
We work with central and local government, regional councils, communities and stakeholders who are looking for better biowaste re-use options.
We combine your local knowledge with the expertise of our four specialised research groups to develop sustainable biowaste re-use solutions that are appropriate and safe for you and your community.
Have a look at our projects to read about real life examples of what researchers at the CIBR can do for you.
