COOE wins research investment funding for more Bio-Refinery products
COOE and its research partner, the Clarke Laboratories at the University of South Australia, have won Australian Government RIB funding to develop an epoxy resin from bio-fuel waste products and hydraulic oils from low cost vegetable oils.
In this final pre commercialisation stage the epoxy resin from a renewable resource will be formulated to meet the current market needs. Similarly the bio-hydraulic oil research will be formulated to produce a fire resistant and biodegradable (non-polluting) product that will meet Australian Mining Industry Standards.
This research adds further capability to the COOE team in their quest to build several bio-refinery products to meet the commercial challenge of producing low cost alternatives to greenhouse gas emitting petroleum products.
