Scientists utilising advanced technologies will work with grazing farmers in Western Australia over the next four years to reduce nutrient loss off farms and improve water quality in local waterways and estuaries. Technologies such as near-infrared and x-ray fluorescence will be used in conjunction with traditional techniques to measure productivity and nutrient status in soils … Continue reading Scientists to work with farmers to improve regional water quality
UNSW Sydney water engineers have revealed that investigating and managing groundwater resources more sustainably can be achieved at lower cost by using existing Earth and atmospheric tidal data. Groundwater exploration can be achieved at much lower cost and with less invasive procedures thanks to a new passive technique being championed by UNSW engineers. In an … Continue reading UNSW water engineers develop new groundwater analysis technique
Seqwater, the statutory water authority of the Queensland government, has worked with robotic researchers at QUT’s Institute for Future Environments to develop the Autonomous Motorised Monitoring Instrument, or SAMMI. Natural Resources Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said that the solar-powered, self-driving robot has the capacity to change the way Seqwater monitors it’s water quality. “Water quality … Continue reading Seqwater and QUT develop autonomous water monitoring robot
Western Australia’s principal water supplier, Water Corporation, will install solar rooftop systems on its buildings across the state and build a renewable energy generator to reduce its energy footprint. Water Corporation pumps water and wastewater across 2.6 million square kilometres, requiring significant energy consumption. In an effort to become more energy efficient, it will install … Continue reading WA’s Water Corporation to roll out solar panels
UNSW scientists have developed a new carbon-based material that could revolutionise moisture control in applications as diverse as electronics, packaging and air conditioning – and which could even be used to keep footwear fresh. The new super dessicant, made from graphene oxide, significantly outperforms current drying agents, and is twice as absorbent as the industry … Continue reading Soaking up the water and the sweat – a new super desiccant
WaterGroup has announced it has signed a five-year partnership with Thinxtra that will enable large water users to detect water leaks and thereby avoid wasting millions of litres of water while realising thousands of dollars in water savings each month. This will be achieved by connecting WaterGroup’s IoT-based smart water meters with the Sigfox Low … Continue reading WaterGroup joins forces with Thinxtra
