CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
Large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary science to address Australia's major national challenges and opportunities.
CSIRO expertise is organised into 11 research areas
CSIRO manages national facilities and collections that are opened to researchers around Australia and overseas.
CSIRO has studied the quality of air inside the typical Australian home.

Sustainable application of effluent and biosolids in Australian forests.
CSIRO is doing research into the effectiveness of restricting and eliminating uses of persistent organic pollutants.
- The Air Pollution Model (TAPM) is a user-friendly model for the prediction of air quality, with a strong scientific basis with verified performance, and can be purchased directly through CSIRO.
- The Contaminant Chemistry and Ecotoxicology program characterises contaminants in landscapes and water bodies, and measures and predicts their effects on biota in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
- CSIRO has developed numerous processes and technologies that assist industrial and commercial sectors to reduce waste and emissions.
Pollution threatens environmental sustainability and can have harmful effects on human health.
It is a complex and far reaching problem and includes:
CSIRO scientists work with industry, regulatory bodies and the community to deliver commercially-viable and cost-effective pollution solutions.
These are based on our understanding of the sources, fate and behaviour of contaminants as they disperse through our water, soils and atmosphere.
