Funding Rounds

The National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia (NCEDA) had a mandate to optimise and adapt desalination technology for Australia, develop solutions for inland areas, and reduce the carbon footprint of desalination through investment in a portfolio of research projects. The Centre’s research portfolio spanned both fundamental and applied research in five areas aligned to the Australian Desalination Research Roadmap:

  1. Pre-treatment,
  2. Reverse osmosis desalting,
  3. Novel desalting,
  4. Concentrate management, and
  5. Social, economic and environmental issues.


Five Funding Rounds were administered and all projects have now been concluded. Please refer to our Programs and Projects for details of funded research projects.
