Docklands Science Park Pty Ltd
- Liquid Fuel Partnership with National Australia Bank and major corporates, developing lower emission and consumption fuel systems. More powerful engines, direct, into the cylinder injection of most fuels.
- The commercialisation of Liquiphase, a liquid LPG fuel system, from the Federal Energy Research & Development Council. This award winning technology is scheduled for international market entry in early 2005 as LPG-Liquid-Inject Ltd.
- Acoustic technology for particle separation and thermoacoustic effects.
- Exciting development is geo-polymer composites. Joint ventures with the inventor, Professor Davidovits of Saint-Quentin, France and CSIRO. Strong prototype products, heat, acid and salinity resistant, are in course of preparation.
- Waste water treatment, through patented capacitive deionisation technologies, of considerable interest to federal governments internationally.
- Heat pump efficiency improvement, involving 6 Universities, corporates and Government Departments.
- New wool, fabric printing system, now released for production, reducing costs sharply, it increases market opportunities versus plain wool fabric.
- Advanced solar heater - currently the worlds best.
- Fast ships program, propulsion, collision avoidance, hulls and ride quality.
- Salt tolerant plants for forage (up to 16% protein), wheat and turf, fast growing trees, particularly paulownia in the Riverina, to lower the water table, reduce salinity and provide greenhouse credits for agriculture.
- New fertilisers / soil conditioners with substantial benefits in greenhouse gas reduction, yield and nutritional quality of produce obtained. Work on using a soil ameliorator to reduce salinity continues, with exciting potential indicated.
- Food technology - directed at exports. Emphasis on 18 month shelf life packaging, without refrigeration, for Europe, Asia, Middle East.
- Newly developed cellulase for production of cheaper ethanol, pure cellulose and other higher market value products from the sugars produced.
- Aerostat radar for border defence, communications and civilian surveillance.
- Development of new engines, including the Environmental Engine (see Technology - Commercial market - OEM cost/benefit), with very low emissions and greater efficiency than existing internal combustion engines, still using common fuels. Plus work with turbines to achieve the same aims.
- Commodity dealing to satisfy overseas customer demands arising from the technologies being developed with the clients. e.g. fuel for engines.
- A new propulsion system is an area of considerable interest, It is expected to have wide application.
- Nanotechnology in many forms. Alloys with special properties such as friction reduction, radar invisible paint, lightweight composites, etc.
