Harnessing sustainable solutions for a healthier future

The Centre for Catalysis and Clean Energy (CCCE) is a Griffith Strategic Centre for innovation in the area of Materiel Sciences and Energy sustainability. In 2021 the centre underwent a name change to reflect the expertise of its members. Since its creation in 2010 the centre was well known nationally and internationally as the Centre for Clean Environment and Energy (CCEE) an independent centre within Griffith University with members from the Sciences Group. The centre hosts well attended workshops and conferences to strengthen ties and collaborations with other institutions.

Our overarching goal is to deliver positive research outcomes that help drive healthy, clean and sustainable environments, both now and in the future.

We focus on innovative chemical and nano-technological approaches to better understand the effects of pollutants within aquatic environments and soils, and renewable green energy sources.
