Developing new technologies to tackle the imbalance between water supply and demand, caused by rapid population growth, over-extraction of water, chronic pollution and climate change.
Our leading edge in water, environment and agriculture technologies
The earth’s natural environment, its food supply, cities and economies are all fundamentally dependent on water. The University of Melbourne is tackling the imbalance between water supply and demand, caused by rapid population, growth over-extraction of water, chronic pollution and climate change. Benefits from our collaborations – as well as our new innovation centre in the Mallee Region – position the University of Melbourne at the forefront of agritech, envirotech and cleantech sectors.
From drone surveillance to mapping horticulture crop health, we are developing new technologies and precision agriculture to boost farm productivity and reduce environmental footprints.
Urban water infrastructure
From smarter delivery systems, to remediating and purifying wastewater, we are at the forefront of understanding the impacts of climate change and population growth on water supply.
Technology to clean-up Antarctica
A century of exploration and research from more than 50 research stations has brought some side effects to Antarctica’s landscape. Now our chemical engineers are using trenches and micro-organisms to remove the soil contamination this historic research has left behind.
