Standards Australia conducted a seminar recently to educate participants on Fine Bubble Technology and also gather interest from stakeholders for the formation of a National Committee on Fine Bubble Technology.

A new technology that creates water containing ultra-fine bubbles smaller than the wavelength of light, Fine Bubble Technology finds wide application in a range of industries such as cleaning, sterilisation, agriculture, fisheries, food production, beverages, medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and healthcare.

The seminar imparted information about the technology and ongoing work being done internationally on Fine Bubble Technology; Standards Australia also sought to determine if participants were in favour of Australia joining the international standards development committee.

Seminar participants included independent experts, regulators, interest groups, and representatives from the food, packaging, engineering, cosmetics and chemicals industries. Dr Toshihiro Fujita, Chair of Japan’s National Mirror Committee of ISO/TC 281 Fine Bubble Technology, gave a keynote presentation.

Participants at the seminar felt Fine Bubble Technology had great potential despite being in the nascent stages of development, and could play a significant role in the Australian and global economy of the future. There was agreement that Australia should participate in the ongoing work on international standards on Fine Bubble Technology to facilitate the speed-to-market of this technology.

Following up on the positive feedback from participants at the seminar, Standards Australia will establish an Australian national mirror committee, with the intention of becoming an ‘Observing’ member at the ISO/TC 281 Fine Bubble Technology committee.

Standards Australia will seek support from more industry groups and stakeholders before the national mirror committee can become a full participating member of ISO/TC 281 Fine Bubble Technology.

Experts, stakeholders and industry groups interested in providing input or joining the Australian national mirror committee for Fine Bubble Technology are welcome to contact Alison Scotland, National Sector Manager at Standards Australia.
