Centre for Clean Environment and Energy (CCEE)
Environmental Futures Research Institute, Griffith University
The Centre focuses on innovative chemical, microbiological and nano-technological approaches to understand the effects of pollutants within aquatic environments and soils. CCEE focuses equally on the development of enabling technological solutions for environmental assessment and remediation, and new sources of renewable energy. The Centre’s research team specialises in environmental and pollution chemistry, environmental microbiology, geochemistry, sensing technology, electrochemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology, photochemistry and photocatalysis, membrane science and nanotechnology. The research focus includes: - Chemistry of natural products - Pollutants identification, speciation and migration - Environmental monitoring techniques - Water quality information collection systems - Wastewater source control and management - Functional nanomaterials - Solar energy conversion - Rechargeable batteries.
