The National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture (NCEA), University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has for the last two years been assessing different techniques for suppressing evaporation from storages. The project has been funded by the Queensland Government’s Department of Natural Resources and Mines through their Rural Water Use Efficiency Initiative (RWUEI). Evaporation Mitigation Technologies (EMT) assessed included chemical monolayers, floating covers, modules and suspended shade structures. The EMTs were investigated according to their efficiency in reducing evaporation, durability in the field and economic practicality.
