Environmental contaminants research underpins the maintenance and protection of Australia’s land and water resources from contamination. It can lead to improved national regulations and guidelines, which protect human ecosystem health and allow safe use of chemicals and disposal of wastes.
We provide scientific and technological innovation to protect and sustain management of our urban and industrial environments.
We provide science to underpin natural resource management in environments impacted by agricultural and rural industries.
We look at what happens to contaminants in our waters and landscape and measure the effects on ecosystems.
See how we use genomics to understand how Australian fauna respond to stressors in their environment.
Our researchers are looking to the natural world to find inspiration for bio-based technologies that provide new tools for a range of industries, including agriculture, water and wastewater treatment, chemical manufacture, and mining.
We are improving protocols for deriving and applying Australian and New Zealand Water Quality guideline values for toxicants. Robust new guideline values for priority contaminants will ensure better protection of aquatic ecosystems.
We have expertise in reusing water, managing contamination and providing environmental solutions for resource developments.
