Capitalising on Australia’s natural gas resources
The demand for natural gas is growing and Australia’s large reserves generate research and development challenges that CSIRO is helping to meet with expertise in gas processing, conversion and a research base geared to meet the evolving needs of the methane economy.
Assessing development sustainability
Understanding the complex interactions between population, resource use and the environment is a difficult task in scenario modelling, but CSIRO is helping Australia find the right path for future sustainable development.
Measuring the value of environmental services in forests
To maximise the benefits of environmental services from forests researchers are developing decision support tools for plantation managers. Underpinning the development of these tools is the collection of new data and calibration of a range of models.
CSIRO provides research activities from quantitative genetics, to precision plantation management, to smart paper and wood products of the future.
Providing forestry research across the entire forestry value chain.
Managing carbon in forests
CSIRO’s expertise in carbon accounting is assisting plantation managers and informing policy development and implementation to support emerging carbon markets.
Fluorine in Australian export thermal coals
A fact sheet on the occurrence of fluorine in Australian and other coals, the behaviour of fluorine during combustion and the environmental effects of fluorine released as a consequence of coal use.
Fire and carbon in regional Australia
This project is identifying the biophysical, economic and social opportunities for remote communities relating to land management for greenhouse gas abatement, with a focus on fire management in tropical savannas.
CSIRO conducts farming research throughout Australia, working with producers and farming groups to trial and evaluate new ideas and techniques.
Evaluating the energy environment equation
Finding a balance between energy supply and environmental health.
The impact of energy developments on air quality, land and water are significant. CSIRO monitors and mitigates these impacts, paving the way for an environmentally sustainable energy future.
CSIRO Energy Technology
We are playing an essential role in researching and developing technologies to achieve the objective of near zero emissions from the use of energy worldwide.
Energy Transformed Flagship
CSIRO’s Energy Transformed Flagship aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions by providing sustainable, efficient, cost-effective energy solutions.
The Energy Transformed Flagship is developing clean affordable energy and transport technologies for a sustainable future - the first steps towards a hydrogen economy.
