Brief description Our next-generation ceramic membranes will increase the speed and efficiency of present industrial separations as well as expanding into a variety of new separations, thereby transforming many Australian industries. Exports of this new technology also will generate significant national benefits. Application of these new membranes to removing pollutants and pathogens from water and/or air will bring significant community benefits globally, addressing such crucial issues as low-cost provision of clean drinking water. Additionally, understanding the cutting-edge science associated with the mechanisms of nanofibre growth and the assembly of nanofibre meshes is highly valuable, making an important contribution to Australia's knowledge-economy.
