Eureka prize - energy from sewage

The Australian Museum Eureka Prizes are the country’s most comprehensive national science awards, honouring excellence across the areas of research & innovation, leadership, science engagement, and school science.

University of Technology Sydney researcher Dr Qilin Wang has received the 2020 Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher. He has developed technology that can transform energy-intensive, high-emission sewage treatment plants into low-emission operations that generate energy instead. This groundbreaking work is currently being commercialised.
