Eco Fuel Innovations, the R&D division of CDP Waste2Energy, has secured a Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) grant for collaborative research with the University of Queensland (UQ).
- Assess the environmental footprint and technical feasibility of the catalytic depolymerisation process
- Understand catalyst performance and longevity in waste conversion
- Propose chemical and processing strategies to increase the energy efficiency of the process
A benefit of this collaboration is the capability to research fundamental chemical engineering and environmental impact questions. These investigations support tailored commercial project outcomes.
CDP Waste2Energy is also participating in a second collaborative research agreement with UQ, also involving research into diversifying feedstock applications and minimising energy consumption. These research projects form part of a broad partnership between the R&D division of CDP Waste2Energy and UQ that continues the ongoing process of identifying and dealing with multiple waste feedstocks that will benefit the environment.
