Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry

SMI-CWiMI aims to be recognised as a leading research centre for supporting sustainable management of water in the minerals and energy industries

The Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry conducts research towards achieving sustainable water management in the mining industry. Founded in 2004, SMI’s Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (SMI-CWiMI) conducts research to achieve sustainable water management in mining and gas projects and regions. We contribute to solving a range of problems covering engineering, environmental and social challenges of water management. We engage with a wide range of research organisations and water stakeholders in Australia and internationally. We are funded principally by regional and national governments, and selected mining and gas companies who are committed to sustainability performance.

 

Our Expertise

The water related challenges that the mining and gas industries face span operational, social and environmental considerations. SMI-CWiMI’s research falls within four themes to address these considerations.
