A new water testing facility will be built by Quantum Filtration Medium in Collie.

Quantum Filtration manufacture an advanced filtration media for the removal of iron and manganese, which has been used in a wide variety of applications in 65 countries worldwide for over 20 years. It is manufactured exclusively in Western Australia by Quantum Filtration Medium Pty Ltd.

The new research and development laboratory will enable the company to develop new products and business streams, and create five new local jobs.

Other funded opportunities in Collie include:

1. The Lupin Co, which already has a small scale plant in Collie, has received funding to trial extracting protein isolates and soluble molecules in powder form to sell to customers in Asia and for new food products in Australia and globally. This will create at least five full-time jobs in Collie plus extra supply contract work.

2. Aquatic Life Industries has received a grant to explore the potential for a new freshwater aquaculture project. The feasibility study will investigate the potential for producing rainbow trout and other freshwater fish species in Collie.

3. Living Legacy will receive funding to support their unique way of remembering loved ones after they've died. Using biotech soils with cremated ash to nourish trees in their existing Collie forest, funding will be used to support planning and infrastructure for the site.

All opportunities are supported by the $2 million Collie Futures Small Grants Program and $18 million Collie Futures Industry Development Fund are part of the wider Collie Futures Fund, working to stimulate economic development and diversification.
