ISER is proud to support the University of Adelaide Centre for Materials in Energy and Catalysis (CMEC). Professor Shizhang Qiao, Centre Director, and his team at CMEC, are undertaking fundamental research into new types of high-performance low-cost metal-based electrocatalysts that are the key to the development of sustainable energy solutions and help to achieve carbon neutrality. They are developing catalysts which can be ‘tailored’ to different uses.

The Centre for Energy Technology (CET) held another successful Research Day on Thursday 12 November 2020. Presentations were given in the three themed topics of: hydrogen – the fuel of the future; circular carbon economy; and decarbonising heavy industry.
Congratulations to Professor Nigel Cook, who has been selected as a Life Sciences and Earth Sciences research field leader in Australia, for geochemistry and mineralogy.
Professor Nigel Cook has written an article about his research into cleaning copper concentrates to increase their quality, for the mining journal Australian Resources and Investment.
Professor Alan Collins from the Department of Earth Sciences is leading a University of Adelaide collaboration with the MinEx CRC’s National Drilling Initiative (NDI). 'Data generated by the NDI will attract exploration investment to Australia', Professor Collins says. Read the new IMER case study for more information.
The University of Adelaide and Tianjin University are leading an Australia-China Joint Research Centre proposal for a Joint Research Centre for Hydrogen Energy (JRC-HE). The centre aims to address critical problems for the commercialisation of a Hydrogen Energy for both countries, ranging from hydrogen production and scaling up, to the end-use of hydrogen and associated techno-economic analysis. We are now seeking research partners and feedback on the Joint Research Centre for Hydrogen Energy Prospectus, before the end of July 2020.
Companies are invited to partner in a new proposal to the Australian Government to form a Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre (HILT CRC) to expedite the decarbonisation of Australia’s heavy industrial processes and produce materials vital to the local and global economies at lower costs and in more sustainable ways. Prospectus now available.
