Improving control of mine gas
CSIRO has developed techniques to control the methane gas emitted during coal mining, helping to prevent spontaneous combustion and increase the safety and productivity of mines.
Particle Analysis Service Lab
From routine analyses for the food industry to the most complex processes used in mining, CSIRO’s Particle Analysis Service (PAS) provides clients with accurate and rapid materials characterisation.
Argon dating meets exploration challenges
Successful exploration relies on knowledge of basin formation and thermal history of sedimentary rock and hydrocarbon migration. CSIRO’s argon dating services can help petroleum companies better determine potential locations for drilling petroleum wells.
FRR Culture Collection
The current holdings of the FRR Culture Collection consists of fungal strains of importance in the food and related industries. There are approximately 250 yeasts and 4000 filamentous fungi, not all of which are listed in this catalogue.
