:: Metso Teams with CSIRO for Process Innovation


Equipment manufacturer Metso has shifted the Brisbane head office of its Process Technology and Innovation division to CSIRO’s Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT), which is also located in the Queensland capital.

QCAT is a collaborative research precinct linking CSIRO, the Queensland State Government, Cooperative Research Centres and other R&D organisations. Metso, QCAT’s only equipment manufacturer, joins Rio Tinto Alcan and BHP Billiton at the facility.

The move to QCAT provides access to state of the art laboratory and pilot plant facilities, according to QCAT’s executive manager Dr Mike McWilliams. “Metso's people at QCAT are involved in process innovation and consulting in mining. “They will share QCAT’s infrastructure and collaborate with CSIRO on process improvement and innovation in minerals and energy. There are many opportunities for future joint CSIRO-Metso projects."

Metso’s senior vice president, process technology and innovation, Dr Walter Valery, said the partnership will benefit R&D projects investigating eco-efficient mining and processing technologies and services to the next level. “We are already working with a number of R&D institutions globally. We share many common interests with CSIRO and with numerous opportunities for forthcoming collaborations, our recent move to QCAT is a smart fit, which will benefit CSIRO, Metso and the industry."
