Brown Coal Innovation Australia

Brief description:

Brown Coal Innovation Australia (BCIA) was set up in 2009 with $16 million funding from the state, following the success of the Energy Technology Innovation Strategy (ETIS), to fund R&D into new and adapted low-emissions technology suitable for Victoria’s brown coal reserves. It is an independent company with a remit to co-invest in projects with industry and research agencies. It also has the role of coordinating all brown coal R&D across the country, in partnership with the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative (NLECI).

BCIA funding is allocated to three key areas:

  • R&D in low-emissions, low-cost coal technologies and high-value products derived from brown coal
  • Training and expertise development in relevant trades
  • Networks to foster international collaboration
