Titomic - Industrial Scale Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing, Titanium, Innovative, Melbourne, Australia
Using supersonic metal particle sprays to get get powder fusion via kinetic impact, not too far from older metal cold spraying techniques. Not using bulk heating so less likely to have warped parts from SLS/SLM methods. Doing aerospace grade titanium, with an ITAR compliance area as well?

Apparently cold pressure treating raw milk that is already bottled in flexible plastic containers (via cold water immersion in a pressure vessel) is almost equivalent to pasteurization since it uses pressure differentials to pop bacteria. By not homogenizing or heat treating, the quality of the milk approaches raw milk apparently.

Boat, based on waterski planing concepts to reduce drag. But isn't this actually just a planing wave piercing SWATH pontoon boat in principle though?

Thorium Energy Generation
This appears to be the underlying partnership company behind the recently announced Australia/Czech MSR/LFTR research effort. I hadn't expected them to also be going after ADSR tech as well. I wonder how that will work out since Aker possesses the basic patent on that?

Australian and Czech consortium announce thorium joint venture | Australian Mining
Czech's are knee deep in molten salt reactor research, so getting a demonstrator, even if it isn't a commercial design, in operation to get ops data is a big win, particularly for those promoting LFTR.

Revetec Homepage
Interesting technique of using a solid double ended piston to drive counterrotating cams to get rotational power, the cam path itself is an interesting way of smoothing out the top/bottom dead center of the piston stroke too. I wnder if it's strictly necessary to have counterrotating trilobe cams though (are pairs even required)?

Seadov Pty Ltd - sea water desalination renewable energy vessel
Crazy plan to desalinate water offshore in a tanker powered by renewable energy, and sell it to coastal cities in Australia. A mobile water plant, so if a city doesn't pay up, you can leave to go feed another market.

MHI to develop compressed air solar power plant : Business : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)
If I understand this correctly, I think they are simply using concentrated solar thermal energy as a substitue for the fuel and combustor assembly in a gas turbine, taking some pressure losses and reduced efficiency in exchange for a dry plant (no heat recovery steam generator turbine). But to be truely dry requires a once through system like a gas turbine, so you take some bad hits on efficiency. Also solar, so unless you use a thermal store (molten salt) to cover nighttime generation you have to shutdown at sundown. If you had the molten salt thermal store to capture some compression heat, then a CAES storage system might be possible, but I imagine that wouldn't be attractive for a scenario like this.

DESERTEC-Australia | Clean Power From Deserts | Welcome to DESERTEC-Australia
Seems these guys are proposing a supergrid style tie-in of a DESERTEC setup in the Australian outback to markets in SE Asia, India, and China, piggybacking on natural gas pipeline infrastructure and possibly augmented by offshore wind (likely at convenient transformer substation rigs and LNG/methane recompressors). (Interesting that they don't make the jump between Japan and China, I wonder why...)
