Industry, Innovation and Science Supporting Science and Commercialisation Business research, development and commercialisation Strategies to prevent two viruses devaluing Australian crocodile skins POROSUS PTY LTD

Two viruses, Kunjin virus and a new (porosus) poxvirus, have been identified in crocodile skin lesions. Crocodile skins are produced for the high-end fashion market. Any skin with lesions is rejected because it will be visible on the finished product. With >35% of skins affected by viral lesions, the estimated economic loss is more than $11 million p.a. to the North Australian economy. We will develop and apply control strategies to prevent these diseases and reduce their transmission.

Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources Emissions study with pilot plant at AGL Loy Yang power station CSIRO

This project builds on the existing collaboration between IHI, a Japanese supplier of post-combustion CO2 capture technology, CSIRO and AGL Loy Yang supported through Brown Coal Innovation Australia. In that collaboration an amine based Post Combustion CO2 Capture pilot plant has been designed and manufactured in Japan and delivered to AGL Loy Yang power station, where it will be operated in two 5000 hour experimental campaigns to assess the energy performance and amine degradation. The proposed project will extend that successful collaboration into an assessment of the plant's atmospheric emissions. Solid knowledge around the emissions from an amine-based Post Combustion CO2 Capture plant is crucial for future large scale application and deployment of the technology.

Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources Australian Subsurface Carbon Sequestration Simulator UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE

Accurate simulation, forecasting, and monitoring of carbon dioxide behaviour is a prerequisite for safe and cost-effective subsurface CO2 abatement. Supporting the Australian clean coal and energy sectors in this quest, with tools and expertise that will boost productivity by transforming traditional discipline-separated sequential workflows, is the goal of this reservoir engineering - hydrogeophysics - simulation-guided engineering project. Via new multiphysics software integrating:
1) fine-grained parallel space-time adaptive injection simulation,
2) forecasting of the CO2-plume geophysical signature,
3) inverse analysis of the plume, and 4) simulation-driven design of injection and monitoring systems, we will improve subsurface knowledge and advance the understanding of Australia’s storage capacity. Demonstration and validation of this new carbon dioxide storage methodology will occur with datasets from Otway, Aquistore and a Chinese Carbon Capture & Storage site.
