Official launch of ARC RECARB

Bondi Bio

27 Sept 2023

Bondi has joined with Senior Australian Government officials, scientists, academics, industry and research partners to officially launch ARC Research Hub for Carbon Utilisation and Recycling.

Launched by The Hon. Cassandra Fernando MP, Federal Member for Holt, on behalf of The Hon. Jason Clare MP, Minister for Education at Monash University, the Australian Research Council (ARC) Research Hub for Carbon Utilisation and Recycling (RECARB) is a new research Hub focused on technologies to transform carbon dioxide emissions.

The Hub will bring together international and national universities and industry partners to develop technologies to transform CO2 emissions into useful products and to develop the markets for these products.

RECARB Director, Professor Paul Webley, Faculty of Engineering at Monash University, welcomed the launch stating:

“We need to change our thinking of carbon emissions from pollutants to useful feedstock. The RECARB hub aims to catalyse this change in thinking by working with industry, government, and university partners to develop and provide high quality solutions especially for the hard-to-abate sectors. The Hub will become Australia's leading research initiative for leading the decarbonisation journey,”

Bondi will be working with the Hub to develop biological technologies that help reduce and reuse carbon emissions and transform those emissions to high-value ingredients.

The Hub is supported by the ARC with AUD$5 million, along with a further AUD$5.8 million from universities and industry partners and AUD$11.8 million in-kind contributions.
