mitsubishiFlinders University welcomes the State Government’s announcement that the former Mitsubishi site will have a strong focus on sustainable and clean technologies, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Barber, said today.

“Flinders strength in these areas drove the University’s recent decision to create a School of the Environment to be operational from 1 January 2010,” he said.

“Flinders looks forward to drawing on its sustainable and clean technologies expertise and working with the State Government in the further development of the Master Plan for the Mitsubishi site.”

  1. I truly hope that in any testing to be conducted in this area is not conducted with faulty equipment as has already been done with the under ground water contamination. I live behind Mitsubishi and there is something in the air that irritates me. Can underground contaminated water be cleaned up?
