There's some exciting research going on within the Environmental hub at UNSW Chemical Engineering.
We have research covering membranes and their applications in water and wastewater treatment, dissolved air flotation and other air separation processes. We also have a team dedicated to research into capture and storage of carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuel burning power plants.
Industries face growing environmental issues related to their water and gas emissions. Local authorities must also assure that safe water is constantly distributed to the customers, while considering wastewater recycling options.
Researchers at UNSW Chemical Engineering are on the frontline of those critical concerns, working in close collaboration with the local industry, technology manufactures and health regulators to optimise existing processes and to also offer new alternative technologies.
