Decision modelling in blockchain adoption and environmental implications

Due to the decentralised and immutable nature of distributed ledger systems, blockchain has become a critical priority for organisations across the world. The global blockchain market is expected to grow from $1.57 billion in 2018 to $162.84 billion by 2027.From an ecological perspective, blockchain has raised environmental concerns due to increasing computational power that is required to operate energy-intensive consensus mechanisms. However, it also has the potential to help promote renewable energy through a variety of blockchain-based use cases such …

Quantifying hydrogen hazards in QUT's H2Xport Pilot Plant using an open source deterministic and probabilistic model

QUT is constructing a new hydrogen pilot plant with several hydrogen technologies and various pipework, valves, welded joints, compression joints, storage vessel and instruments. The hazards and operability study (HAZOP) has been done and hydrogen leaks need to be quantified.A Hydrogen Risk Assessment Model toolkit will be used that integrates deterministic and probabilistic models for quantifying accident scenarios, predicting physical effects, and characterising hydrogen hazards’ impact on people and structures.

Low cost, long life metal-ion capacitors and supercapacitors for renewable energy storage

Australia boasts rich wind and solar energy resources. To avoid fluctuations placing severe burden on the power grids, a reliable and efficient battery storage is required.The present technology based on lithium-ion batteries suffers from high manufacturing cost, poor safety and short life-span.A new kind of storage devices, metal-ion capacitors (MICs), are expected to overcome the storage and the charging speed of the traditional batteries in the near future, opening new avenues for renewable energy resources. The basic structure of MICs …
