Putting Photonics in Sewers

Project Partners: Macquarie University, Sydney Water and Melbourne Water


Photonic sensing promises to improve sewer pipe management with in-situ monitoring reducing the need to enter sewer pipes and providing superior predictive strategies.

Smart Self-Healing Concrete 

Development of smart structures capable of sensing and, even responding to problems.  

Novel Geopolymer Concrete

Project Partners: Western Sydney University, CPB Contractors and CIMIC Group


The production of geopolymers offers the greatest potential in solving not only the waste management problem related to the aluminosilicate solid waste materials generated from various industries, but also the environmental degradation related to the use of OPC as primary binder materials in the construction industry.
