How's it made? Using IoT to verify supply chains - by Rose Matthews
A huge proportion of our world's natural resources are spent growing, farming, or otherwise producing commodities for food and clothing. Complex, opaque supply chains that cross international boundaries keep consumers in the dark about how their choices impact the environment, removing any commercial incentive to act sustainably. Australia-based impact venture OpenSC is tackling this by taking a human-centred design approach to implementing technology that will verify claims made about any given supply chain, using a variety of sensors and processes to collect data and crafting algorithms that combine it into meaningful information. This talk will show how this work is being done and what our vision is for a more sustainable, environment-friendly future.
How Hydrogen can enable the decarbonisation of our industries? - by Thomas Padovani
Thomas will cover what could be a future Hydrogen economy and present the strategy of Australia to lead that transition. He will share a vision of hydrogen commercialization pathways. Padotech, Hydrogene de France (HDF), and Cape York Partnership (CYP) are developing Hydrogen projects with aboriginal communities in Northern Queensland. The objective is to offset the usage of Diesel and create new opportunities for the region. He will explain how these types of projects could be significant achievements in deploying those technologies at scale and increasing renewable energy penetration on our electricity networks.
