This project aims to complete an inventory review of chemicals that are utilised by the Water Corporation in its regular business and identify or create novel processes that can produce the chemicals from either:

  1. Water Corporation’s waste streams and by-products, or
  2. Western Australian Industry waste streams.

The identified processes will be new to the marketplace, that is, not already employed or identified by the Water Corporation. The project will consider the commercial merits of the identified processes in addition to the social and environmental benefits.

Note: Chemicals refers to gases, liquids and solids used in treatment processes or ancillary Water Corporation activities.

Note – to access Water Corporation sites, the appointed student will need to have received their first dose of COVID vaccine by 31 December, and their second by 31 January 2022. This is a requirement for all contractors working on Water Corporation sites. A vaccination certificate will need to be presented at Water Corp induction.
