Angela Doyle is the State Director, Western Australia at AMGC.


Perth, WA

MIRRECO is among an expanding group of Australian innovators who see the vast potential of industrial hemp. Founder Richard Evans (on the left) recently showed me around their new Kensington site and told me about the WA startup’s vision for “climate leadership” through collaborations with growers, builders and others. MIRRECO is commercialising portable hemp processing machines, building products, and 3D printable and structural hemp. Richard’s vision of the future? Strong, high-value, quickly-made products, made from quick-growing hemp plants that can quickly sequester carbon. But the really exciting part of all this, he tells me, is “being surrounded by like-minded people who want to make a positive difference.”
