BCIA Research Investment Manager, Dr David McManus, recently presented awards to two winners of the 2014 Australian Institute of Energy (AIE) Postgraduate Student Energy Awards held in Melbourne.

BCIA Research Investment Manager, Dr David McManus, recently presented awards to two winners of the 2014 Australian Institute of Energy (AIE) Postgraduate Student Energy Awards held in Melbourne.

Hosted by the AIE Melbourne branch in conjunction with the All-Energy Australia Exhibition and Conference, the ‘Awards Poster’ competition was held in as a part of the exhibition, allowing for 25 posters to be displayed.

BCIA has sponsored the AIE Postgraduate Student Energy Awards for the past two years. The student posters were judged by a panel including five representatives from the various Awards’ sponsors and the AIE. The judges commented on the high standard of design and presentation and the student explanations of their projects.


The students were divided into three groups, based on their research topics, designated ‘Carbon Reduction’, ‘Renewable Energy’ and ‘Future Energy’ (covering a wide range of other leading projects), with nine students receiving awards ranging from $500 to $1000 and a commemorative plaque.

BCIA sponsored the ‘Carbon Reduction’ group of projects, with first prize awarded to Mr Adam Rady of Monash University, a BCIA PhD scholarship holder, for his poster ‘Evaluation of Victorian brown coal as a fuel for Direct Carbon Fuel Cells’.

Frank Wu from the University of Melbourne received the Highly Commended award in this category for his poster on ‘Rate based modelling of Potassium Carbonate precipitating absorption columns in carbon capture’.

BCIA continues to invest in these types of programs as part of our commitment to strategic investment in skills development to secure the scientific, engineering and trades expertise required for the development of new low-emissions brown coal technologies.
