AUSTRALIAN CARBON INNOVATION'S MISSION
TO INVEST PROACTIVELY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGIES AND PEOPLE TO
DEVELOP HIGH VALUE CARBON PRODUCTS FOR A LOW EMISSIONS FUTURE
INVESTING IN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The mission of Australian Carbon Innovation (ACI) is to actively support the development of new opportunities to create products and technologies for a low-emissions future using Australia’s undervalued raw materials, such as bituminous coal and lignite, biomass wastes, paper making waste lignin, used car tyres, waste plastics, power station fly ash, and captured carbon dioxide emissions. ACI is guiding the development of new carbon-based opportunities in a wide range of industry sectors, including agriculture, construction, fuels and chemicals, bioplastics, renewable energy, transport, food processing and medical diagnostics.
DEVELOPING SKILLS FOR INDUSTRY
Availability and accessibility of human resource expertise is of critical concern for current and future carbon-based industries. In association with industry and our tertiary education partners, ACI is focused strongly on creating training opportunities to secure the scientific, engineering and trades expertise needed to develop low-emissions carbon technologies. ACI is supporting future scientists and engineers by fostering Australia's research leadership in carbon upgrading through collaboration between researchers, industry and government.
Australian Carbon Innovation (ACI) membership leverages organisational commitment to a low emissions future for Australia's substantial carbon-based resources. As a member-based company, ACI undertakes a range of programs of interest to carbon resource stakeholders including industry, research and education providers, governments and international carbon technology organisations.
