We look to the natural world to find inspiration for bio-based technologies that provide new tools for a range of industries, including water and wastewater treatment, mining, energy, chemical manufacture and agriculture.

The challenge

Our Earth is challenged with population growth, increasing resource demand, undesired environmental impacts from human activities and waste generation that threaten the sustainability of industries, and human and ecosystem health.

Our response

We develop tools and biotechnical solutions for sustainable industrial processes, resource recovery from waste streams, pollution prevention, remediation of contaminated environments, and minimisation of contaminant risks resulting in economic value, smaller environmental footprint and improved human and ecosystem health.

The result

Our work improves the sustainability of industries, reduces costs and environmental impacts and increases stakeholder confidence in environmental and human health protection measures.
