Leading local technology saving water from Torres Strait to the Gold Coast

Water has long been acknowledged as Australia’s most precious resource, but it doesn’t stop us from wasting it. While poor infrastructure or a poor understanding of personal use can be major factors in excess water use Griffith research has revealed that water use in remote communities can dwarf urban use. Providing water to remote and […]

Biological threats to be detected by Griffith

Griffith University researchers have developed a system that can quickly detect airborne biological threats. Professor Igor Agranovski, of the School of Engineering, has developed a system that collects aerosolised micro-organisms and finds the threats, such as fungi spores, viruses and bacteria. Such a system could be crucial to soldiers in the field or post-event investigations. The […]
