The Australasian Land & Groundwater Association (ALGA) Ltd recognises the important role of research and development for the contaminated land and remediation industry and the on-going positive impacts it has on our communities.
By providing funding of up to AU$50,000 the ALGA Research and Development Grant (ALGA R&D Grant) program gives a helping hand to organisations carrying out projects and conducting research, that will have a real and significant benefit to the community and the contaminated land and remediation industry, as a whole.
2018: The Inaugural R&D Grant was awarded to Ventia Pty Ltd for their project "Improving Measurement Reliability of the PFAS TOP Assay".
Ventia Utility Services (Ventia) in conjunction with the National Measurement Institute (NMI), Eurofins and Australian Laboratory Services (ALS) were awarded the inaugural ALGA Research & Development Grant to conduct the project ‘Improving Measurement Reliability of the PFAS TOP Assay’. The project was an inter-laboratory assessment of the per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) total oxidisable precursor (TOP) assay.
2019: The Board of Directors will retrospectively review the Inaugural R&D Grant to ensure it achieved the hoped-for objectives, and if not what adjustments need to be made to any future grant offerings.
