Ecotechnology Australia Pty Ltd (ETA) was formed in October 2003. A grant from the Australian Government’s Sustainable Regions Program awarded to ETA in October 2005 provided strategic support in the start-up phase of the company’s development as a stand-alone entity.
The Ecoteam division was then established in 2009. We now have 10 staff and are growing from strength to strength. Our latest projects include the Brisbane Airport, Orana Haven Wastewater Treatment Wetland and Samboja Lestari in Borneo.
