Research and Development opportunities

COOE can assist Clients to identify environmental studies that could, with accurate record keeping and the application of scientific rigour, qualify for the Research & Development Tax Incentive. This could include:

  1. Developing new methods of undertaking flora or fauna surveys that can reduce cost without effecting quality. Whilst meeting Licence obligations.
  2. Developing more robust and cost effective aquatic, estuarine or marine monitoring programs that meet environmental compliance.
  3. Investigating ecological survey methods such as Ecosystem Functional Analysis to evaluate progress towards handover criteria after Mine Closure.
  4. Research in water quality management using algae, wetlands or other natural treatment systems that may proffer further opportunities such as the production of bio-fuel or animal feed.
  5. Develop scientific methods for tracking contaminant plumes in marine, terrestrial or groundwater aquatic systems.

The broad technical base of our team provide our Clients endless opportunities for Research and Development.
