CDU campus contributes to sustainable urban development

The façade of Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) new city campus is completed ahead of the wet season, capping off the building’s main protection against Darwin’s tropical heat and humidity. Standing 40 metres tall, with a combination of vertical and sloping design features, the building includes curtain wall with porcelain tiles, horizontal aluminium louvres, and various types of cladding to reflect the harsh Darwin weather, while ensuring the iconic Boab tree is not overshadowed. The façade is primarily made of porcelain cladding, which is engineered to endure — it is non-combustible, absorbs mi... more

Recycled glass and reclaimed asphalt used to revamp Clarence Street

Around 120,000 glass jars and more than 200 tonnes of reclaimed asphalt were used to refresh a one kilometre stretch of Clarence Street in Sydney. This means nearly a quarter of materials used to renew more than 8,000 square metres of road surface is recycled. The City of Sydney resurfaces around 35,000 square metres of road each year. Since July 2021, the City of Sydney has used around 1.5 million recycled glass jars and more than 6,000 tonnes of reclaimed asphalt in its road renewal program. Lord Mayor of Sydney Clover Moore AO said: “What was once considered waste is now being seen as a resource. T... more

POSCO and ENGIE to conduct major renewable hydrogen project

South Korean steel-making company POSCO and French energy generator ENGIE will conduct a pre-feasibility study for a major renewable hydrogen project in the Pilbara. The study will consider the possibility of utilising renewable hydrogen to power POSCO's proposed Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) plant in Port Hedland, as well as the exportation of green fuel to South Korea. Western Australia currently provides 38 per cent of the world's supply of iron ore — which is processed overseas to make steel. HBI is a premium form of direct reduced iron which will add downstream value to Pilbara iron before it is expo... more

Port Bonython Hydrogen Hub endorsed by governments

The Federal and South Australian governments have finalised a grant agreement to develop the Port Bonython Hydrogen Hub near Whyalla, which will create regional jobs and bring Australia another step closer to becoming a renewable energy superpower. Together, both governments are investing $100 million to develop infrastructure at Port Bonython and prepare it to become South Australia's first large-scale export terminal for hydrogen. Along with private sector funding, the redeveloped Port Bonython is expected to host projects worth up to $13 billion and projected to generate as much as 1.8 million tonnes of... more
