Project Announcement: Requirements, specifications and piloting of interoperable ecosystem cluster management

This project will contribute to the development of effective digitalisation data ecosystems by developing and implementing standards-based interoperable interfaces at cross-organisational level, i.e., across value chains or clusters of organisations. A use-case driven methodology will lead to a demonstratable pilot implementation which expands upon existing digital ecosystem architectures and information standards, in particular from the…

Developing green steel with new recipes for iron ore reduction

Like a Master Chef in his kitchen, the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) Mr Dongke Zhang loves to experiment with new recipes – only his kitchen is a state-of-the art laboratory, his favourite ingredients include iron ore and ammonia and the dish he hopes to serve is “green steel”. As a globally-leading researcher into decarbonising…

Net Zero Australia Project: Detailed “how to” scenarios for lower emissions

Reaching Net Zero by 2050 is a goal most governments and organisations have now adopted. The next challenge is to answer the question of exactly how to do so, given the competing constraints and requirements societies like Australia must balance. Significant progress answering this question has now been made with the interim results released today…

Project Announcement: Asset Reliability and Risk Interoperability to Optimise Maintenance Execution and Improve Risk Management of Energy Producers

Data and analytics silos existing in industrial organisations, such as energy producers, hamper the ability to combine analytics models to derive further benefits over their original purpose. In particular, the ability to incorporate operational reliability model outputs—which have the primary purpose of informing operators of asset health and probable failures—as the inputs to risk models…

Project Announcement: Pathways to a sustainable hydrogen supply

Hydrogen production, storage and transport are seen as key enabling technologies to allow the transition to a hydrogen economy. However, there remains multiple challenges facing such supply chain development. Technology readiness, technology scale-up and access to low-cost renewable electricity remain significant hurdles; overcoming these will be pivotal in unlocking such a hydrogen economy. This project…

Project Announcement: Avoiding sulphur compound freeze-out in liquefied natural gas production

Project Announcement: Avoiding sulphur compound freeze-out in liquefied natural gas production

During the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG), impurities within the gas stream can freeze-out and block the cryogenic heat exchangers that are critical to liquefaction. Although sulphur compounds are ubiquitous contaminants of natural gas, there is very little existing experimental data that can be used to accurately characterise the freeze-out of these compounds. This…

Project Announcement: Avoiding and remediating heavy hydrocarbon freeze-out in liquefied natural gas production

Despite the ubiquity of heavy hydrocarbons in natural gas process streams, there are few studies of freeze-out in industrial natural gas mixtures that contain multiple heavy hydrocarbon species. This leads to uncertainties around the optimal methods for blockage avoidance and remediation. This project will generate new freeze-out and melting data for heavy hydrocarbons in industrial gas samples using state-of-the-art…

Project Announcement: Bridging blue and green hydrogen

In this project researchers will establish a base case scenario in which hydrogen is generated with an electrolyser and is co-located with a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) running off natural gas and which acts in a firming capacity – oxygen is emitted in this case. This arrangement will be tested against different levels of…

Project Announcement: Thermophysical Properties of Hydrogen Enriched Natural Gas

This project will focus on the blending hydrogen into natural gas pipeline networks as a means of delivering hydrogen to markets. Mixing hydrogen into natural gas pipelines requires several considerations regarding the compression of this mixture, the use of the mixture as a fuel (for example, in gas turbines), and the impact of pipeline capacity…
