From effective water treatment to waste transformation, our researchers are developing innovative solutions to help us achieve a truly sustainable future.
Our partners: Murray Darling Basin Authority
Our research is focused on understanding the coupled hydraulic and ecological environment in rivers and lakes.
The huge flow variability in Australian rivers for example leads to extreme flow related ecological events such as algal blooms or large-scale fish kills.
We’re investigating the fluid mechanics of these events with the goal of developing better modelling and catchment management tools. It includes:
Our 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:
Our 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.
We're addressing this issue by re-evaluating the traditional production cycle towards waste minimisation, reuse, recycling and other recovery. Projects in this area include:
