There is no shortage of promising papers being published, but they need to better focus on where they can make a difference, according to a long-time recycling researcher. Brent Balinski spoke to Associate Professor Abbas Mohajerani about focus, patience and turning butts into building products.
Green Distillation Technologies, best known for its process that turns end-of-life tyres into carbon, oil and steel, has announced the development of a new technique to further process reclaimed materials into hydrogen.
For 50 years hydrogen has been championed as a clean-burning gas that could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The idea of a “hydrogen economy” is now enjoying a new wave of enthusiasm — but it is not a silver bullet.

Following yesterday’s comment on the opportunity of lower-emissions energy, @AuManufacturing’s “technologies and tools…” series turns to the future of hydrogen. Dr Fiona Simon explains its potential role as an exportable fuel, a fuel for process heat or energy for transport, and in supporting high-skilled jobs.
Technologies and tools for a manufacturing transformation: why it’s important to commercialise new materials by Gary Walsh
@AuManufacturing’s highly successful new deal plan for manufacturing was aimed at Australia’s policy makers. Our new series, crowd sourced advice from our manufacturing community, aims to help businesses transform their operations to compete and grow through new tools and technologies. Here Gary Walsh explains why it’s important to commercialise new materials by taking ideas out of the lab and into industrial reality
Online submissions are open for the design of a national Hydrogen Certification Scheme. which will monitor production of the gas and the environmental impacts of this.
