Research Institute

Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute was founded to develop, advance and implement intergenerational commercially sustainable  societal, resources, environmental and agricultural methodologies.

The focus is upon developing biogenic solutions that are deliverable by global society in the resolution of global issues and the advancement of commercial organic food, natural energy and economic, intergenerationally sustainable environmental management.


Completed Research Projects 

The SABR Process

Symbiotic Aquatic BioReactor 

SABR offers the opportunity to reduce and remove challenging effluent issues, develop effective re-utilisation and achieve compliant environmental release of process affected waters and water overburden from mines, industrial processing operations, intensive agriculture and natural environmental disasters in an economic, commercial and eco-societally acceptable manner.

The Earth Sustaining Sciences approach is to utilise SABR process bioremediation to treat waters and soils achieving beneficial outcomes to assist in the immediate remediation of on-site and off-site environmental systems.

BioOrganic Desalination System

ESS has designed and reproduced a new biogenic process as a solutions for water and soil desalination.

Following 6-years' of self-funded research, ESS is at the forefront of a low cost bio-organic desalination process research and progressed to system development.

To date, ESS’ new SABR-BODS system has reduced mine water salinity by 50% in both laboratory and field applications and reduced the salinity of seawater by 71%.

The current process is demonstrating suitability for low cost, high volume agricultural, mining and industrial systems.

The next stage of the project is to create the first low cost, biogenic filtration process to desalinate water to Industrial, agricultural and potable quality. 



ESS is currently undertaking a project to develop a cost effective biogenic refractory ore treatment recovery process.
