Hello and welcome to today’s Chemeng365 blog. I’m currently enjoying meeting many chemical engineers in some of IChemE’s membership hot-spots in the Asia Pacific and Australasia regions.
Having just enjoyed a successful Chemeca 14 conference in Perth, Australia, I thought I’d keep the Australia theme going with an interesting hydrogen energy story from New South Wales.
You may have spotted a blog recently about the Hy-cycle – a bicycle powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
It’s just one of the interesting projects coming out of Australia at the moment attempting to develop hydrogen as a source of clean energy.
Some of the work is being driven by a research group called MERLin, which is based at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia.

Some stories in the world of chemical engineering have stand-out lines that really grab my attention.
This week I came across an interesting story from Australia about a team of chemical engineers that have built a bicycle powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
In itself this is a great achievement, but it was a quote from associate professor Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou, who works in the chemical engineering department at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), that really caught my attention.
