Conductivity and impedance measurements

CSIRO offers expertise and equipment for measuring conductivity and impedance of new materials.

Cobalt in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of cobalt in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of cobalt during combustion and the environmental and health effects of cobalt released as a consequence of coal use.

Chromium in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of chromium in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of chromium during combustion and the environmental and health effects of chromium released as a consequence of coal use.

Chlorine in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of chlorine in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of chlorine during combustion and the environmental and health effects of chlorine released as a consequence of coal use.

Carbon capture and storage

Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technologies have the potential to make deep cuts in Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power stations. CSIRO is working to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of CCS so it is a viable option for our energy future.

Carbon and rural land use: key findings

This report brings together much of the latest research on emission reduction and offsets in rural land, including the potential of forests as carbon sinks.

Cadmium in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of cadmium in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of cadmium during combustion and the environmental and health effects of cadmium released as a consequence of coal use.

Automatic fault detection and diagnosis

CSIRO researchers are detecting and diagnosing system faults in buildings for better energy efficiency, improved maintenance and cost savings.

Boron in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of boron in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of boron during combustion and the environmental and health effects of boron released as a consequence of coal use.

Biofuel: fuelling transport with biofuels

Biofuels will play a big part in our transport future. Finding a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel based petroleum and diesel will become more important as oil supplies decline, petrol prices soar and the necessity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensifies.

Barium in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of barium in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of barium during combustion and the environmental and health effects of barium released as a consequence of coal use.

Beryllium in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of beryllium in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of beryllium during combustion and the environmental and health effects of beryllium released as a consequence of coal use.

This research analyses the occurrence, behaviour and environmental impacts of trace elements in coal

A fact sheet on the occurrence of arsenic in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of arsenic during combustion and the environmental and health effects of arsenic released as a consequence of coal use.

Antimony in Australian export thermal coals

A fact sheet on the occurrence of antimony in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of antimony during combustion and the environmental and health effects of antimony released as a consequence of coal use.

Developing new solar air turbine system technology

A new partnership between CSIRO and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will develop and demonstrate large scale air turbine system technology for concentrated solar thermal power plants.

Can CSIRO help reduce your power bills?

Feeling the chill this winter? Or in summer do you feel like you’re living in an oven?

Getting smarter about supplying electricity

This month’s final print edition of Ecos – Australia’s longest running magazine on science and sustainability – features expert commentary on the drivers of rising household electricity bills identified in the recently released eighth update to Professor Ross Garnaut’s Climate Change Review for the Australian Government.

CO2 capture from coal power begins in Qld

Low emissions coal technology research has reached an important milestone in Queensland with the first capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from Tarong Power Station flue gases using post combustion capture (PCC) technology.

Funding to help solve solar energy puzzle

CSIRO has welcomed the award of a $5.65 million grant from the Australian Solar Institute towards three major solar research projects worth a total of $16 million.

Volunteer to save power, reduce your ‘footprint’

CSIRO is looking for 500 volunteers from across New South Wales to join a free program that helps people save power and reduce their carbon footprint.

Sunny future for Australia's solar industry

CSIRO will today begin installing 450 large mirrors, called heliostats, for Australia’s largest solar-thermal tower system at the CSIRO National Solar Energy Centre in Newcastle, New South Wales.

Remote-access meters can cut your energy costs

A new web-based smart metering system has been developed by CSIRO to enable householders, small businesses and electricity retailers to remotely control energy use over a broadband Internet connection.

CSIRO building largest tower of solar power

In a major step forward for Australian research into solar energy, CSIRO is building the largest solar-power tower of its type in the world at the National Solar Energy Centre in Newcastle.

World-first study for cleaner aviation fuel

CSIRO together with Australasia’s major aviation players is leading a world-first study to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from air transport by helping to develop a sustainable aviation fuels industry.

Wyoming Governor visits coal research facilities

Wyoming State Governor, Dave Freudenthal, and a senior delegation from General Electric (GE) and the University of Wyoming, recently visited CSIRO's low emission coal research facilities in Brisbane on a fact-finding mission.
