Conflicting knowledge claims and disputes about the perceived lack of (especially scientific) knowledge and certainty occupy a central role in how impacts and risks of present and planned CSG developments are understood by different stakeholders.

This project aims to produce a new generation of high flux, inorganic membranes for desalination in the coal seam gas (CSG) industry. The key concept of this research is an inorganic membrane with an intelligent, hierarchical and highly percolative structure that can recover fresh water from either CSG water or the highly concentrated brine waste streams through the process of membrane distillation. The key requirements for desalination via membrane distillation are high water flux, high salt rejection, robust membranes and...
