Webley Group — Clean Energy Laboratory

The Clean Energy Laboratory focuses on cutting edge research aimed at improving the sustainability of chemical and physical processing in the energy industry.

Our goals are to understand the fundamental science of energy and to exploit this knowledge to develop applied technology for more efficient processing and energy production. Currently, our focus is development and characterisation of nanomaterials for efficient gas and liquid processing, gas and liquid separation technology, carbon capture, carbon dioxide utilisation, natural gas processing, biofuels from algae and advanced energy storage analysis and development.

We are from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering within the Melbourne School of Engineering and are located on the 4th floor of the School of Chemistry.
