The Australian Water Authority (AWA)  celebrated the winners of the VIC Water Awards at their Gala night on 28 March 2022. The annual VIC Water Awards recognise contributions to industry leadership, innovative research, programs and infrastructure projects.

Congratulations to members of our Centre at RMIT and our industry partners for winning the Research and Development Excellence Award this year. The citation by the AWA notes the following:-

“The R&D Excellence award recognised that the new pilot scale biosolids pyrolysis technology, developed by RMIT University in collaboration with South East Water, Intelligent Water Network and Greater Western Water, is the first of its kind in Australia. The technology removes pathogens and emerging contaminants from biosolids creating biochar, a product which is safer to use.”
