Timor-Leste has purchased breakthrough Australian chemical recycling technology that produces high-value feedstock from all plastics, with adoptions in UK, Germany and US to follow.

The Government of Timor-Leste has signed a memorandum of understanding at the University of Sydney with Mura Technology for the development of a US$40 million chemical recycling plant.
