A major component of the UQ Energy initiative is to support research in energy innovations to supplement traditional energy suppliesMeeting the world's growing demand for energy, while minimising related impacts on the environment, represent great technical challenges. UQ’s capabilities in innovative energies have received a major boost through significant infrastructure investments, attracting research leaders in the field solar energy, biofuel research and geothermal energy research
The QUT Mackay Renewable Biocommodities Pilot Plant (‘Mackay Pilot Plant’) is unique pilot scale research and development infrastructure for the conversion of cellulosic biomass into renewable transport fuels (bioethanol) and high value biocommodities in an integrated biorefinery. The facility aims to link innovations in product and process development with the assessment of commercial viability to enhance the uptake of this technology in Australia.
To create, deploy and lead algae-based technologies and solutions that provide the world with sustainable ways to address the global issues of water food and energy security
MBD Energy Limited is helping to build a cleaner energy future by recycling industrial waste.
Based on nature, MBD is developing low cost processes that clean waste from a range of industries. Our business model is simple – partner with leading industry companies, clean their waste cheaper than other alternatives and where commercial, develop products that we can sell for additional revenue. The company has in place a strong R&D base. MBD continues our drive to establish and scale operations at our key project sites. We will continue this development and work with the partner companies and regulators to ensure we have biosorption and bioremediation processes that can be applied across our target industries.
MBD Energy is focussed on 3 main projects, Pacific Reef, Thailand and mine water remediation and the associated R&D that support these projects. We have worked to maintain strong progress of industry waste bioremediation and worked on our transition from R&D to industry based projects and profitability
SynDynamics have developed a break-through plasma technology. The unique plasma architecture has far reaching implications in the field of hazardous waste remediation with hitherto unprecedented efficiencies and results. The new economics to this disruptive technology will also have broad applications in remediation of a full spectrum of waste streams
