Control Of Acoustic Cavitation In Complex Fluids

Grant number: DP0556117


The outcomes of this project will provide, for the first time, the knowledge needed to optimise sonochemical reactions and thus pave the way for the greater use of sonochemisty in commercial processes. There are several areas of commercial significance where sonochemical processes could be used, e.g., remediation of wastewater containing organic pollutants, destruction of biowastes, etc. We have established strong contacts with the Victorian EPA, Orica, Food Science Australia and are developing links with Nufarm and Comalco. Apart from the potential practical outcomes, we will establish stronger ties with our international collaborators as well as train/educate a number of tertiary level stu..
