Join TTNA for a tour of the Victorian Desalination Project, the largest desalination plant in Australia and the largest seawater reverse osmosis plant in operation globally.
Delivering substantial innovation in renewable technologies to mitigate potential environmental impacts, the plant (pictured at right) was built with 55,000 membranes and 72 dual media filtration pumps that remove salinity from salt water to make high-quality drinking water. A source of rainfall-independent water, the plant has a production capacity of 150 billion litres of water a year.

This half day technology seminar, with Phil Aitchison, head of R&D/IP Strategy for Imagine Intelligent Materials Pty Ltd, will outline the value proposition for graphene and its potential for new, high performance polymers and composite materials.
First isolated just 10 years ago, graphene is the world’s first 2D material. A single atom of carbon thick, graphene is the world’s strongest material (200 times stronger than steel); the world’s most conductive material and the thinnest material on earth.
These attributes offer enormous potential for new,
