Arris Water
• Small business formed from University
research outcomes
•Maintained a strong research focus
• Currently sponsoring 3 post-graduate
positions
•Also providing industry placement
positions for students working on minithesis components of subjects
Arris delivers - Research
• Non-typical wastewater or water problems benefit from thorough and
detailed research programs.
• Arris Water conducts research in the mining, industrial and residential
sectors.
• Arris has the capacity to undertake research independently or our strong
links to the Central Queensland University and the Waite Campus of the
University of Adelaide facilitate collaborative research approaches.
• Arris is committed to research and education in the water sector.
Volcanic media research
Tube trials conducted with different
types of volcanic media to determine
water treatment performance.
Arris delivers - Research
• Arris has focused its research on providing ‘fit-for-purpose’ recycled
water
• This has involved the removal of various contaminants of concern
• Arris is researching novel techniques for the capture and recycling of
phosphorus from treated effluent.
• Our research projects commonly involve agricultural irrigation
Agricultural Production Research
In-field lettuce trials.
Arris delivers – Phosphorus Recovery
• The Arris research program will be
completed in 4 phases
• Removal of P from treated water
• Regeneration of recovery media
• Evaluate Ion Exchange
• Assess P-bioavailability
Phosphorus Bioavailability
•
•
•
•
CSIRO research has changed the understanding of
what P is bioavailable
P that has traditionally thought of as unavailable,
has been shown to be in fact available over time
when no other P sources are present
Compounds include CaPO4 precipitates,
Increased availability is believed to be is to be
driven by increased root interception and exuding
of root complexing compounds
Pot Trials Protocol
•
Identify P responsive soils
–
–
•
Add P compounds/products identified in P removal research (phase 1)
–
•
•
•
Seeking soils with low cation exchange capacity
P response curves will be developed using TSP
P additions will be matched to those developed in P response curve study
Plot out wheat plants
Grow for 5 weeks

Discussion Issues
•
Microbiological quality of water – C2 laboratory
•
Ideal end use of treated water
•
Access to treated water
– Post activated sludge
– Pre activated sludge

Coal Seam Gas and mining water solutions
• Arris has developed technology that can reduce the Sodium Adsorption
Ratio (SAR) by over 95% while also significantly lowering the salinity.
• Arris can successfully decrease the concentrations of heavy metals and
hydrocarbons.
• Arris, in conjunction with the CQUniversity, is conducting research into
the efficacy of its patented, trade-secret ion exchange technology for the
remediation of associated/co-produced water.
 Associated water may contain several contaminants of concern;
including sodicity, salinity, strontium, chlorides, bromide, boron,
various fraccing chemicals and fluoride.
