South Australian communications channel Adelaide Now has featured NVA technologies in a video clip extolling the opportunities in the cleantech sector for the State. The video, click here to view, features excerpts and images from animations that were prepared relating to the Aquasens Biosensor which has been developed by Monash University’s Gippsland Campus over the last three years. Wind turbines for energy generation are also heavily featured.
NVA is a partner in the South Australian activity CleanFutures. CleanFutures was formed in January 2009 between NVA, Australian CleanTech and Bridge8, with the goal of successfully funding and commercialising nanotechnologies that enable clean futures. NVA has agreed to make several key technologies:
- Aquasens, a rapid, highly sensitive sensor probe for the detection of nitrates and phosphates in water, and sulphites in wine and food products;
- Oxipure, a patented technology for the effective removal of contaminants including arsenic, phosphates and silicates from environmental waters; and
- Carbon nanotube composites for wind turbine blades;
available for development within CleanFutures.
