At BioPRIA we are dedicated to seeking knowledge and innovation to provide solutions to industry challenges. Our expertise covers nanocellulose production techniques, biorefinery and sustainable processes, and bio-diagnostics.
Our researchers come from a wide range of multidisciplinary knowledge and they complement BioPRIA research capabilities. We have also established a reputation for excellence research programs, measured through grants and funding.
Through our network of collaborators and partner organisations, BioPRIA has access to the cutting-edge technology that enables our researches to conduct scientific investigations and further innovate.
Surface Engineering and Colloids Laboratory
BioPRIA at Monash University, has the best pulp and paper laboratory in Australia, with a well-equipped surface engineering laboratory and process pilot facilities for novel cellulosic material and chemical engineering.
Green Chemistry Futures
The Green Chemical Futures is a multidisciplinary hub that provides comprehensive analytical and pilot-scale synthesis facilities. BioPRIA researchers and the experts at the Green Chemistry Futures will work closely in green chemistry research to design new manufacturing processes for industries that are non-toxic, energy efficient and waste-free.
Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy
The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM) provides advanced instrumentation, expertise and teaching in electron microscopy. These instruments include transmission electron microscopes, scanning electron microscopes and a dual beam focussed ion beam (FIB) microscope.
Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS)
Located in University of Tasmania, the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS) is equipped with over $8M of state-of-the-art chromatographic and mass spectrometry equipment. BioPRIA researchers and the Centre are collaborating in green chemicals from lignocellulose projects.
