Two Round 19 CRCs were announced yesterday, for food waste and future fuels. They join the minerals exploration CRC announced last month. CMM knows of at least more successful centre to be announced for the round.
Details on the Fight Food Waste CRC are sparse but it certainly involves the SA state government and the University of Adelaide. It will work on co-product development and reducing product substitution for food and wine producers.
The Future Fuels CRC will research using hydrogen as a fuel in the existing gas network and continue the work of the Energy Pipelines CRC. Undoubtedly coincidentally, ministers yesterday also announced $100m for a pilot programme converting Latrobe Valley brown coal into hydrogen fuel for the Japanese energy market.
