Research themes

  • Climate resilient water management
  • Energy efficient water systems
  • Reducing fugitive greenhouse emissions from wastewater treatment.

What are the novel ideas and solutions

  • Understanding the factors that make drinking water supplies resilient to extreme weather events including fires, floods, droughts, heatwaves, and wind.
  • Optimisation of low-energy solutions for drinking water and wastewater treatment.
  • Adjusting wastewater treatment processes to minimise production and release of fugitive greenhouses gasses including CO2, CH4 and N2O.
