By Beth Fulton– Head of Ecosystem Modelling, Marine and Atmospheric Research Australians want a future of sustainable self-sufficiency and a healthy environment supporting a robust democracy – free of poverty and inequity. That was one of our projections, as part of the Australia 2050 project for the Australian Academy of Science. Equally, Australians fear a future
The ‘I’ in CSIRO is fundamental to what we do. We work with thousands of companies each year, from small local businesses to large multi-nationals – whoever is best placed to take a new technology to market and provide benefit to Australia. That’s why we’ve been working with our good friends over at General Electric
Today we celebrate the career of Dr Lan Lam – the primary inventor of CSIRO’s UltraBattery – an invention putting two technologies together into one awesome storage unit! Bringing down the cost of hybrid electric vehicles and making it easier to integrate more renewable energy into the grid are just some of the achievements of
To celebrate the recent release of the Oxijet shower nozzle, which we helped develop to cut your water usage while improving your perceived water pressure, we have a handful to give away.

The Food Futures Flagship’s work in the area of quality biosensors draws on research into the smell and taste receptors of microscopic
By Keirissa Lawson We have developed a hydrocarbon sensor array system that can detect different types of hydrocarbons in marine waters at varying sensitivities and in real time. The sensors were originally used to explore for oil and gas resources, but are also being applied to study ocean changes, monitor our marine environments and measure
Petrochemicals are, like, so last century. Biodegradable, bioderived biomaterials are all the rage, and for good reason too.
Did you know that magnesium is the lightest of all metals – about one-third lighter than aluminium? That it is non-toxic, non-magnetic, has high-impact strength, is castable and resistant to denting? All of which makes it a great fit for the global auto industry looking to find new ways to make cars lighter and more
