Wealth from Waste
A research collaboration cluster project that evaluates the capacity for Australia to widen its approach to mineral production to one that involves greater secondary production as a means of reducing the environmental, social and economic impacts of primary production, and increasing capacity to supply the region with minerals for a range of advanced manufacturing applications.
ISF was Cluster Leader for this Australian collaboration between the CSIRO and five universities to investigate technologies and practices to make our electricity networks smart, greener and more efficient.
