Queensland Urban Utilities converted an empty heritage-listed building at our biggest sewage treatment plant, Luggage Point, to an Innovation Centre housing world-leading research.
We’re working with the University of Queensland’s Advanced Water Management Centre to do just that – advance the way we manage water and sewerage. It’s a rare opportunity to have scientists working side-by-side with treatment plant operators.
Apart from an unlimited supply of samples from our plant, research scientists have access to the perfect tools, like the world’s largest replica sewer main. We’re also the first utility in Australia to nurture baby Annamox bugs into a booming farm. These bugs convert waste into gas, removing an entire step in the treatment process. In other words, the bugs do the hard work naturally, so we can save on chemical and energy use. For more information visit www.urbanutilities.com.au/innovation
