ARC Training Centre for the
Transformation of Australia’s
Biosolids Resource


We will be looking at improving existing wastewater treatment processes/technologies and current beneficial routes as well as investigating new alternative technologies to reduce biosolids volume and transform them into high-value products.

Enhancing product

We will investigate the transformation of biosolids into novel carbon based fertiliser/growing media/ advance materials for its use in commercial farming systems and non-farming systems to develop sustainable water treatment and farming systems by closing carbon and nutrient cycles.


We will consider a number of topics that are central to the successful implementation of improved management of biosolids or related products relevant to water and agriculture industries and environmental protection agencies (EPAs).
