  • Flexing industrial refrigeration: A feasibility study for Australian abattoirs

    Abattoirs are energy-intensive businesses that use vast amounts of energy for both heating (steam and hot water) and cooling…

  • Using phase change materials for flexible demand in industrial refrigeration

    Using phase change materials for flexible demand in industrial refrigeration

  • Electrifying the Cold Chain - Phase 1: Concept Development

    This project has reviewed three commercial transport refrigeration systems (vapour compression, cryogenic and eutectic) and developed a concept design for an innovative eutectic refrigeration system.

  • Biogas from agricultural waste - A techno-economic evaluation

    This report contains a techno-economic assessment of biogas production using agricultural wastes including sugar mill wastes and chicken manure.

  • Food Value Chain

    The food value chain faces many challenges as it delivers essential and valued services to consumers while confronting climate change, increasing costs, disruptive innovation, extreme competition and many other issues.

  • Mapping Organic Waste in Sydney: Advancing Anaerobic Co-Digestion

    The energy, water and waste sectors share a common policy objective of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and a commitment to the Global Methane Pledge of cutting at least 30% of anthropogenic methane emissions by 2030 from 2020 levels.

  • Testing and monitoring of an energy-efficient indirect evaporative (dew-point) CO2 (DP-CO2) refrigeration system at a Coles supermarket in Adelaide

    We have published two milestones reports for this project that can be found on the project's webpage.

  • Improving biogas production of sewage sludge

    Two pretreatment options for improving energy from wastewater treatment plant sludges – thermal hydrolysis and wet air oxidation – are explored in this report.

  • Techno-economic Feasibility Study of Mechanical Vapour Recompression (MVR) for improving Energy Efficiency in Meat Rendering

    This report is the culmination of a targeted technical and economic feasibility study aimed at reducing the risk of adoption of Mechanical Vapour Recompression (MVR) technology for heat supply in the meat rendering and processing

  • Industry 4.0 Opportunities in White Certificate Schemes

    We have published two milestones reports for this project that can be found on the project's webpage.
