Waterless fracking, where alternative fluids are used to provide the hydraulic energy to fracture rock and release natural gas, is a relatively recent innovation designed to make fracking a more safe and efficient process.
In September 2016, the Northern Territory Government announced a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of onshore unconventional reservoirs, including the use of hydraulic fracturing for exploration, extraction and production. This was followed by the announcement of an independent Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing of Onshore...
The development and regulation of any onshore unconventional gas industry is an equally contentious matter in the Northern Territory. Three Territory governments have commissioned reviews and inquiries into the onshore unconventional petroleum industry to identify, address and alleviate community concerns in this regard.
A better understanding of soil microbiology is essential if agricultural production is to meet the needs of a growing world population.
There exists a strong and growing body of scientific research evidence that supports the belief that to achieve the targets set by the Paris climate change conference, greenhouse gas must be actively removed from the atmosphere and stored. Carbon capture and storage...
In the introductory abstract to ‘Vision Infinity for Food Security,’ (Sharma and Wightman 2015), co-author Dr Shashi Sharma draws our attention to the 1798 prediction by Thomas Malthus that human kind’s ability to feed itself was limited by population size. Malthus foresaw a time when...
The importance of appropriate plant nutrient management in agricultural soil cannot be overstated. If agricultural and pastoral activity is to be maximised in a sustainable fashion, it is imperative that plants are supplied by proper nutrition. The available quantity of many of these essential plant...
This resource discusses soil microbiology, soil microbiological ecosystems and research into the analysis and maintenance of healthy soils and soil biological fertility, with Bioscience Managing Director, Dr Peter Keating.
The terms microorganisms or microbes refer to the vast range of living organisms that are...
