Papua New Guinea is a county of amazing people and incredible geography. All too often though, the rugged beauty of PNG's landscape clashes with the basic needs of the people who live there.

Provision of basic services that most people take for granted can become very difficult without the right infrastructure and support network in place. Goddard and Tyne's involvement seeks to improve the quality of lives by making access to much needed medical facilities and basic community supplies possible, especially for people in regional and remote areas of PNG.

Why is PNG so important to Australia?

PNG, our closest neighbour, has been a significant partner in Australian history and PNG's people have helped shape our part of the world in that time. Today, PNG is one of Australia's most important trade partners. At this time however, PNG needs our assistance to help the country meet the demands of the modern world. Given our connection over the last 100 years we have a responsibility to help these amazing people as they make the most of their amazing country.

What can we do to help PNG?

We need to stay involved and to meet the issues head on where they are affecting PNG's people the most. Our latest projects are targeting the regional and rural areas of the country. Our work is about developing practical solutions now for every day issues affecting real people. Some of our projects will be simple and quick to implement while others will be complex and require ongoing effort. Whilst we are working closely with the PNG government, who are very supportive of our efforts, we need your help to make these programs successful.

Please consider any of the ways shown here to lend your support.

Some of the major issues facing PNG and which Goddard & Tyne are addressing

Maternal Health
and Care

Right now PNG has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. The chance of a mother dying in PNG at child birth is more than 90 times higher than for Australian mothers.

Clean Water

Access to clean water is something many people living in remote areas of PNG can't take for granted. Something as simple as a metal bucket to aid in the collection of sustainable quantities of water.

Engineering Skills Development

Machinery can play a significant role in helping remote communities in PNG to improve their lives. By educating locals in basic engineering principals and mechanical techniques equipment can be maintained and serviced.

Our latest initiative for 2015

A new patent pending biological wastewater treatment process has been developed. This is a versatile process that can be applied to both domestic and industrial wastewater large or small. Unlike other biological wastewater treatments, the Oceania Water new process does not produce excess biological sludge and removes ammonia and Nitrate at the same time in a simple set up.

It also can handle the changes in the quality and quality of wastewater is a self adjustment manner. It does not require highly specialised manpower to operate the facility. It also can be packaged for the remote areas. In this process the effluent waste water along with the returned biological sludge is introduced and distributed at the bottom of a tank. A simple, non clogging, long life high turbulence aeration is done at the upper parts of the tank. Anoxic, anaerobic, facultative and aerobic zones are automatically formed as the mixed flow is travelling from the bottom of the treatment tank to the top.

Nitrates are turned into Nitrogen gas at bottom anoxic zone and stripped out on upper part by the aeration. Due to futile cycle around and through the turbulent aeration. the excess biological sludge production is eliminated while pollutants in the organic loading are removed. A new type of packing media with very high specific surface area is developed which can be used to nitrify the ammonia and removed the remaining pollutants in a very small foot print set up. Treated wastewater can be disinfected or go through filtration for reuse.
