Cost-effective restoration of wetlands that protect the Great Barrier Reef

Griffith University

This project will apply and advance a novel methodology, which incorporates ecological, economic and social factors to determine the most cost-effective restoration projects based on: 1) Restoration should be cheap, feasible and maximise ecological and social returns; 2) Funds should be allocated to wetlands that efficiently trap terrestrial pollutants; 3) Wetlands that deliver additional ecosystem services should be prioritised.

Advancement and Commercialisation of Spinifex Nanocellulose Enhanced Rubber Products

The University of Queensland

Look to make further advancement and commercialisation of spinifex nanocellulose enhanced rubber products. This proposal involves the application of a patented Queensland nanotechnology for the reinforcement of ultra-thin and strong condoms and surgical gloves, and more durable compounded rubber materials. In the manufacture of condoms, latex rubber materials are sought that are resistant to breakage, but also have high flexibility to allow for a close fit and improved feel of sensation.

Easily deconstructed spinifex nanofibres for enhancement of high-performance construction materials

The University of Queensland

This project aims at address challenges by improving the flexural strength and reducing the shrinkage and surface cracking of cement and concrete materials, and improving in the dimensional stability and durability of bituminous road surfaces and spray-on sealants using the unique, low-cost, high-performance nanofibres that are easily deconstructed from Australian arid spinifex grasses.

Identifying sources of fine sediments to protect the GBR

James Cook University

This project will for the first time characterise and trace the origin(s) of the sediments that are most responsible for the declining condition of the GBR. This will enable direct targeting of the sources of this material to achieve maximum benefits to GBR health from catchment management actions.

Targeting genome stability in cancer

Queensland University of Technology

Patients presenting with metastatic disease are almost exclusively non-curable. It is vital, that we understand this disease at the molecular level, that we identify new therapeutic targets and biomarkers. It is generally agreed that targeting the genome stability pathways, offer one of the best hopes of tackling cancers. Given the evidence, it is vital that we understand how normal cellular processes protect us from genome instability and how ultimately genome stability functions in cancer and cancer progression. A novel mechanism for cancer treatment has been developed that uses chemically modified DNA molecules targeting DNA repair proteins. This research aims to further characterise these DNA molecules as an effective cancer treatment.

Water purification pipes for irrigation using poor quality water resources

Queensland University of Technology

Freshwater water resources are declining globally. Although other impurities can also harm plants, so often salt is the main issue. Desalination technologies have advanced significantly but still are energy extensive and costly for irrigation. This research aims to develop a cost-effective technology for irrigation. These water purification pipes comprise of hydrogel layer supporting a membrane that faces poor quality water inside the pipes.

Transforming Queensland's agricultural and petroleum waste products into advanced composites.

Queensland University of Technology

This project seeks to lay down the initial foundations of an Advanced Carbon Fibre Composite Industry forged from the already existing advantages of local Queensland industries. In the broader context, the project seeks to bridge the divide between the existing Queensland Sugarcane Industry and the Queensland Petrochemical Industry and connect, integrate and equip these Queensland industries with advanced manufacturing capability and knowhow in biorefining.
