All active participants benefit from and contribute to a common collaborative approach to finding innovative and sustainable new solutions to increasingly complex industry challenges.
Simply put, industry clusters are collaborative concentrations of related industry organisations. They consist of companies, suppliers, and service providers, as well as government agencies and other institutions that provide education, information, research, and technical support to a regional economy.

The mining industry is a major economic contributor, responsible for the land disturbance and the initial mineral value extraction operations. It also has a responsibility to leave behind a positive legacy once mining activites finish.
The ‘Net Best Outcome’ solution that enviroMETS pursue for that legacy will often also involve innovations in other industry sectors and adapting them for our mining sector.
enviroMETS network of researchers, small-medium companies, government relationships and corporate participants reaches within and beyond the mining industry for innovative and sustainable solutions.
We identify, build and manage collaborations to pursue;
Examples of these approaches are EQ Resources at Mt Carbine, recommercialisation of mine waste with new XRT technology.
Genex solar - pumped hydro power generation repurposing of mining site landform.
Phibion's development of its MudMaster® system for dewatering tailings storage facilities.
SoilCyclers remediation project to ameliorate soil deficits.
Through active participation, enviroMETS Qld’ collaborators build tailored solutions for mutual benefit by focussing on, and contributing to, our go-to Expertise Steams.
An innovation ecosystem capability is derived through its unique ability to bring together and manage a wide range of capabilities across the participant groups to deliver tailored cutting-edge solutions to industry challenges. The landscape of current, prospective, and potential active participants illustrates how the innovation ecosystem can build unique collaborative relationships across six characteristic groups.
The enviroMETS ecosystem can reach out across and beyond the mining industry offering solutions beyond the capability and scope of a single firm, or industry subgroup. The organisations shown below are representative of this ecosystem's potential.
Note: We have used industry recognised logos of organisations representative of the clustering ecosystem groups that can potentailly work together to generate new value for the sector.
enviroMETS Qld offers a single source robust solution to complex post mining land use challenges.
Being founded on a not-for-profit innovation ecosystem model allows enviroMETS Qld to tailor our project capability as managed venture consortiums developed across our collaborator groups.enviroMETS Qld offers a single source robust solution to complex post mining land use challenges.
