Engineering solutions for informal settlements in Honiara, Solomon Islands
Based on technical site visits and self-identified community needs, RMIT University engineers from different disciplines are designing solutions to mitigate water, sanitation, drainage, waste, and flood risks in five highly vulnerable settlements in Honiara, Solomon Islands.
Aquatic Pollution Prevention Partnership
The aims of this research partnership between Melbourne Water and RMIT University is to help prevent aquatic pollution.
The Litter Trackers: Reducing Littering by Education
Most litter that ends up in Port Phillip Bay comes from the catchments. Education is an integral tool for achieving long-term change in community behaviors and reducing litter in waterways and the Bay.
Sustainable water desalination using waste heat and renewable energy sources
The need for freshwater is considered a critical global problem, consequently the demand for alternative sustainable water sources including ground water, desalinated water, and recycled water has increased over recent years and, as a result, the implementation of desalination plants is growing on a large scale.
The Supercity Nansha project aims to explore and highlight the important role architecture can play in the context of sustainability and liveable spaces.
