The CSIR’s technology platform for adsorbent technologies focuses on the development of low-cost polymer-based adsorbents for the removal of toxic pollutants such as heavy metals, anions and organi
The CSIR, in collaboration with Cape Aerospace Technologies and Stellenbosch University, is working on a 200 N (Newton) micro gas turbine engine for the hobby market, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs
Geological structures that disrupt the continuity and flat-lying tabular geometry of gold and platinum orebodies cause significant production losses and compromise safety due to poor ground conditi
In 2017, the CSIR and Aerosud, an aeronautical engineering and manufacturing company, developed an advanced three-dimensional (3D) printer for metal components as part of project Aeroswift.
The CSIR has successfully implemented an algae-based wastewater treatment solution at the Motetema wastewater treatment works in the Sekhukhune District Municipality in Limpopo to facilitate the ef
The CSIR has developed a robust system to rapidly detect deformation of land surfaces. This is particularly useful in mined areas, where early detection of deformation is pivotal.
CSIR researchers have developed vehicle condition monitoring systems for the rail and bus transport industry that collect and analyse vehicle, driver and passenger data to optimise the operation of
