Albanians will meet US President Joe Biden in Cambodia

Katharine Murphy

Good afternoon again from Cambodia. Considering it's peak season, things are running late. But I'll give you up to speed with the developments so far. Anthony Albanese has participated in the last Asean events this morning and at the East Asia Summit. As I previously indicated, the prime minister will meet the US president here shortly on the sidelines of this event, and speak to journalists afterwards.

I gather in remarks not long ago at the East Asia Summit, the Alba person (among other observations) underlined Australia's commitment to advancing the Aukus agreement as one part of Australia's response to the complex regional security environment, and Australia's commitment to the principles of a non-governmental regime. -global nuclear proliferation.

Political observers will know Aukus is controversial in the region. Some of our close neighbors oppose the deal on the grounds that it sparks an arms race in the region. But this partnership is very important for our security alliance with the US. Joe Biden (fresh from his tidbit that Democrats will hold the US Senate after the recent midterms) is speaking at the East Asia Summit as we speak. In addition to speaking with Alba's people, Biden has a bilateral scheduled this afternoon with the Japanese prime minister, Fumio Kishida.

Australian recycling company raises $50 million to upgrade innovative technology

Australian company Samsara Eco has raised more than $50 million for its idea to use a synthetic protein that can break down plastic into reusable components, AAP reports.

Paul Riley, chief executive of Samsara Eco, said:

Enzymes... come in and literally just break the polymer chains and then we just separate the various components that are left.

It has the potential to really change the game. It has the potential to move the button on carbon.

Samasara enzymes produce identical products with pure plastic equivalent to conventional recycling.

Samsara has raised $54m to improve its operations over the coming year. The target is to recycle 1.5 million tonnes per year by 2030.

Brisbane Airport will be 100% powered by renewable energy

Queensland's capital airport has signed a deal with state-owned Stanwell generator which will supply 100% of its electricity needs from renewable energy.

The Queensland government announced the deal on Sunday, saying Stanwell would supply up to 185 GWh of renewable energy annually to run everything from runway lights and travellators to retail stores and electric vehicles.
