A while back Earthworker ran a successful crowdfunding campaign called Licence to Co-operate.
One of the rewards for supporters was for a tour of Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) in Brunswick, Melbourne. PICAC is an initiative proudly supported by the Communications, Electrical and Plumbing Union (Plumbing Division Victoria), Master Plumbers and Mechanical Services Association of Australia, National Fire Industry Association, Air Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors Association and Plumbing Joint Training Fund.
The reward was thanks to Plumbing Trades Employees Union.
On the 31st of May (2013) we visited PICAC. All agreed that this was an impressive facility that should be known about by more people. Here are some photos from the day.
The Earthworker strategy is about eventually manufacturing as much of these new technologies as they improve with R&D, here in Australia.
