The University of Sydney and Indian Institute of Technology Madras have commenced four new joint projects to address international energy challenges.
The projects are the result of an agreement between the universities signed last year to develop research and technology addressing issues highlighted by the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.
The research projects are:
- Advanced free-breathing direct ammonia fuel cells
- Boron-doped diamond based electrolysis: Giving a second life to industrial waste water
- Microstructural engineering for hydrogen embrittlement resistant high-strength steels
- Carbon capture and recycling technologies
The partnership will also provide opportunities for research students, as well as early- and mid-career researchers, giving them the chance to work internationally and develop global networks.
