Haldor Topsøe A/S received the Oil and Gas Award at the IChemE Global Awards 2019 for their TiGAS™ Project.
Recognising that natural gas flared into the atmosphere is a waste of resource, the team set out to find a way to convert natural gas, or any carbon containing source, into synthetic gasoline, resulting in better utilisation of resource and therefore more efficient and environmentally friendly too.
Hear more about this project from Finn Joensen and Angelica Hidalgo Vivas, who were extremely pleased to have won the IChemE Oil and Gas Award 2019.:

In Singapore resource is quite constrained, so with this in mind Jacobs Engineering and the Singapore Public Utilities Board developed an ingenious idea by creating a membrane bioreactor to recover wastewater, reclaiming this vital resource for future use.
Winning the IChemE Global Awards 2019 in the Water Award category, their project Tuas Nexus and Tuas WRP, managed to combine the elements of wastewater and fully recover this back into drinking-grade water. Not only that, the project has managed to simultaneously implement a circular economy by creating an energy recovery process, all-in-all providing a sustainable outcome.
Here are Chew Chee Keong and Colin Newbury talking about the project in more detail:

At IChemE we’re undertaking a series of projects that aim to improve member services, service delivery and the sustainability of our Institution.
One of these is an overarching project called Programme SMART which, as IChemE’s Vice President of Qualifications Ainslie Just discussed in our recent blog, aims to deliver sustainable membership growth.
In today’s blog, Rob Best who is the Chair of the Individual Case Procedure Task and Finish Group, provides an update on one of the projects in the “Flexible Pathways to Membership” area of Programme SMART.
