Dr Stephan Tait & Team Work on Pork CRC Project on Lagoon Management

Friday, 27 February 2015

Pork CRC research fellow Dr. Stephan Tait recently led a team of AWMC researchers including Dr Sergi Astals, Dr. Paul Jensen and Prof. Damien Batstone to successfully deliver a Pork CRC research project that will enable better lagoon start-up, management, and operation by avoiding costly failure and achieving better effluent quality.

The project aimed to develop tools and a simple test method that can diagnose whether the biology in a lagoon is in good health and indicate whether a specific chemical is likely to cause problems with operation by inhibition of the biology.

The project has now been successfully completed and the Pork CRC has submitted a provisional patent based on the test method. Find further information and the full report here.
