Each month we'll have an interesting topic for discussion and the opportunity to meet and catch up with other AWA members. Events are free, with a bar available at the venue to purchase your own drinks.
Our September sundowner will be held on Wednesday 18 September 2019 and our guest speaker will be Luc Kox who will enlighten us on the global resurgence of interest in the Hydrogen economy.
Fossil fuel derived hydrogen is widely used today as a feedstock for industrial processes such as petroleum refining and the production of fertilisers. The significant reduction in costs of renewable energy in recent years has resulted in an increase of the viability to produce so-called green hydrogen using electrolysis. This gives Hydrogen the potential to play a significant role in the rapidly changing energy landscape, driven by the need for our society to decarbonise. With water as a primary input, the generation of renewable Hydrogen via electrolysis marks a significant new area of potential activity for the water industry. There are some left field ideas, too. Like the technology being developed by the Hazer Group here in WA using sewage derived biogas as a source of renewable Hydrogen.
Luc is an engineer with a long history in the water industry, initially in the Netherlands and Asia, and for the past 10 years here in Australia. Luc's passion for sustainable technology and development has taken him more recently from the water sector into the energy sector where he is currently the Commercial Manager for Hazer Group. But he's never really left water. Luc's energy interest is primarily focused on Hydrogen which is set to have many touch points with the water sector.
