This research focuses on the development of safe, reliable, low-cost and ecologically sound technologies for the production of clean and potable water for industry and households from a range of sources including freshwater, seawater, stormwater and wastewater. We aim to:
This research involves finding ways to creating useful materials from solid, liquid and gaseous wastes. The management of waste is perhaps one of today’s greatest challenges. Our researchers are addressing this issue by re-evaluating the traditional production cycle towards waste minimisation, reuse, recycling and other recovery. Projects in this area include:
