Queensland police harness the power of hydrogen

Queensland has commissioned Australia’s first hydrogen-powered police vehicle which will be used by Queensland Police officers assigned to the North Brisbane Domestic and Family Violence Vulnerable Persons Unit. Minister for Energy and Public Works Mick de Brenni said by running the vehicle in real-world conditions means Queenslanders and Queensland businesses can be at the front of the queue for the thousands of jobs the hydrogen industry will create. “Queensland police will test this emerging electric vehicle technology, initially refuelling at the Redlands Research Facility, and following that at Qu... more

IMCRC collaboration en route to develop green hydrogen storage solution

The Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC), Rux Energy and the University of Sydney have joined forces on a collaborative research project that will deliver game-changing dispatchable hydrogen gas tanks. Currently, the inability to store hydrogen efficiently is preventing it from being widely used as a zero-carbon fuel. To combat this, the Sydney-based research project, which commenced in March 2021, has developed new metal-organic frameworks for the high-performance adsorption of hydrogen. The new materials are set to be integrated into field-ready tank prototypes for trials and test... more

There’s no rolling back on this one, but there is a way forward

Compliance, cost, sustainability, community expectations, on-site realities and productivity. Always productivity. Procurement managers, ESG managers and tyre management teams have a lot to consider when making decisions about tyre purchase and disposal; and it’s not going to get any easier unless we change the way we do things. Why should we be talking about this? And, why now? The Government’s national waste reduction policy and action plan means that 80 per cent of all waste streams are expected to be recycled by 2030, and mines are being called on to identify solutions now. One of the most-challen... more

Partnership to remove electric freight barriers

An industry-leading partnership between the Australian Trucking Association and Electric Vehicle Council will work to remove barriers to electric freight vehicle uptake in Australia. Australia has been falling behind in the global uptake of electric freight vehicles, lacking an electric trucks strategy and charging infrastructure. There is currently limited model availability and regulatory barriers. “The ATA and the EVC have a shared vision to accelerate the electrification of road transport, and we are thrilled to begin this important partnership,” Australian Trucking Association CEO Michael Deegan s... more
Greenpeace celebrates 50 years of activism

Greenpeace celebrates 50 years of activism

The iconic global environmental organisation, Greenpeace, today celebrates its fiftieth year of fighting for a greener, fairer and more peaceful world. From the founding voyage in 1971 of a group of activists in a rickety boat to stop nuclear testing in Alaska, to the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior in Auckland Harbour, sending boats to block Japanese whalers in Antarctic waters, and the gaoling of the ‘Arctic 30’ in Russia following a peaceful protest against oil giant Gazprom, Greenpeace is synonymous with fearless, courageous defence of the environment against all odds. “I’ve loved Greenpeace sin... more
