Fugitive emissions from coal seam gas
Coal seam gas (CSG) is a rapidly expanding industry in Australia but at present there is very little measurement based information available regarding fugitive emissions from the CSG production process.
Engineering underpins processing capabilities
A pilot-scale sintering facility in Queensland, Australia is helping researchers better understand the processing behaviour of lower-grade iron ores – information crucial for achieving the best sinter performance from these resources while reducing the process’s environmental impact.
Space the final frontier. Our Space program enables Students to gain a better understanding of what it's like to live and work in space and explore the planets of our solar system. Space is a hands-on program, run by CSIRO for Northern Territory in Transition - Year 2
Electricity and Magnetism
We use electricity every day, but how many of us really understand it? CSIRO runs an interactive Electricity and Magnetism program for students in the Northern Territory from Transition to Year 2.
To help students find out more about energy transformation, CSIRO runs an interactive Exciting Energy program in the Northern Territory for Years 3 - 6.
Robotics Junior student workshop
What are robots and how do they work? Students will gain a basic understanding of robotics in the hands-on Robotic Junior program, run by CSIRO for Northern Territory in Transition - Year 2
Post combustion capture
Our scientists are developing and trialling carbon capture technology to reduce greenhouse emissions from coal-fired power generation.
Coal grain analysis information is providing a better understanding of the coal performance in existing applications, such as coke making and conventional power generation.
A step towards zero emission communities
A new CSIRO research centre to help transform Australian electricity networks and lower greenhouse gas emissions was opened today at the CSIRO Energy Centre in Newcastle, NSW.
Energy sector modelling
We use the Energy Sector Model to determine the impact of potential future events, policies and technology breakthroughs on the uptake of new technologies in electricity generation and transport.
Diesel designs cut health risk
CSIRO researchers are developing technologies to improve the health and safety of mine workers by reducing their exposure to damaging particulates.
Energymark is helping households and communities reduce their carbon footprints, lower energy consumption and save on power bills.
Developing techniques for Australian coal mining
The longwall top coal caving method could double the amount of coal recoverable from Australia’s thick seams of underground coal while improving safety and reducing the risk of spontaneous combustion.
APP post-combustion capture research advances
CSIRO, with funding from the Australian Government through the Asia-Pacific Partnership (APP) Program on Clean Energy and Climate, has completed a four-year, multidisciplinary research effort assessing the role post-combustion carbon capture (PCC) may contribute to a low emission coal future for Australia, and the Asia-Pacific region.
CSIRO works closely with its research partners and industry to ensure Australia's alumina industry remains competitive.
High temperature processing
CSIRO is working with industry to increase recovery rates, improve the handling of valuable metals and enhance operational practices.
