The National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia (NCEDA) had a mandate to optimise and adapt desalination technology for Australia, develop solutions for inland areas, and reduce the carbon footprint of desalination through investment in a portfolio of research projects. The Centre’s research portfolio spanned both fundamental and applied research in five areas aligned to the Australian Desalination Research Roadmap:
- Reverse osmosis desalting,
- Novel desalting,
- Concentrate management, and
- Social, economic and environmental issues.
Five Funding Rounds were administered and all projects have now been concluded. Please refer to our Programs and Projects for details of funded research projects.
