The C02 Research Facility is a world-class carbon-storage research facility and an important component of Australia‚Äôs national efforts to achieve a carbon-reduced resources and energy economy.

Storing carbon is a major strategy to reduce overall global carbon emissions into the atmosphere, and therefore mitigate the adverse effects of climate change. This is a stated Australian Government priority and part of its multi-billion dollar Clean Energy Plan.

This highly safe and state-of-the-art facility will also teach the next generation of process engineers and other technical experts who work on energy and industrial projects world-wide. It will ensure our students graduate with high skills and relevant, accredited training.

The facility will be a significant drawcard for attracting international research talent and cooperation, helping Australia to build its capability and talent pool.

The C02 Research Facility is a partnership between The University of Western Australia, CSIRO and Curtin University, with funding from the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education through the Education Investment Fund.

Campus Management are the lead project manager on the project to deliver the new the CO2 Research Facility .
