Changing the world by addressing environmental sustainability and population health

A healthy environment for disease prevention human safety is a global imperative. The need for immediate action to care for our environment and prevent further damage has never been so clear. Researchers at the Future Industries Institute draw on their expertise in the areas of contaminant analysis, ecotoxicology, thermal energy applications and marine ecology to develop innovative solutions to the challenges facing agriculture and the environment. Our focus on remediation of contaminated sites, the control of antibiotic resistant microorganisms, food security and energy storage ensures health equity and economic benefits for all.

Our research capabilities include:

  • Environmental and human exposure assessment
  • Characterisation and remediation of contaminated sites
  • Food security, plant nutrition and soil fertility
  • Risk assessment of emerging contaminants
  • Environmental microbial ecology, metagenomics and antibiotic resistance
  • Waste characterisation and valorisation
  • Marine ecology and seafood provenance
