Tools for Better Project Environmental Outcomes - LCA and EPDs
Date:
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Jonas Bengtsson EDGE and Stephen Mitchell EPD Australasia
Venue:
Zenith Theatre Cnr Railway & McIntosh Streets Chatswood
Synopsis:
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is an ISO standardised method for quantifying environmental impacts of a specific project, product or service. Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide independently verified environmental data and other environmental information of specific products and services – including a carbon footprint. Since these tools are considered to be the optimal methods of ascertaining environmental impacts, this event aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of these tools and their applicability in the industry.

Thursday, November 14, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Mr Luke Taylor, Sustainable Living Foundation
Venue:
Discovery Hub, level 31 600 Bourke Street, Melbourne
Synopsis:
The SENG Vic Committee meeting/AGM will commence at 5.30pm. It will be followed by screening of the film "Home Front: Episode One - Existential Gamble”
Urban Development Impacted by High Groundwater
Date:
Monday, November 11, 2019 - 12:00
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Jim Davies, Alex Rogers
Venue:
Engineers Australia Perth Auditorium. 712 Murray Street West Perth, 6005
Synopsis:
This technical session will provide an overview of the hydrological processes which determine high groundwater conditions (incl. rainfall regimes and climate change) and the impact on hydrological engineering design for urban developments.
Life Cycle Analysis in Engineering
Date:
Thursday, October 10, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr Enda Crossin, Swinburne Uni and Ms Nicole Sullivan, Green Building Council
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
With engineering projects facing the challenge of reaching a sustainable and net zero carbon future, the life cycle analysis process is more important than ever. Join us to learn how can we successfully analyse a project across various points over the life cycle. Co-hosted with Asset Management Council, Engineers Without Borders, Mechanical College & Risk Engineering Society.
Building Information Modelling - The future of designing green buildings and infrastructure
Date:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Liam Corscadden Australian Digital Engineering Lead for Urban Development & Regeneration for Arcadis, and Matt Drake, Digital Engineering Manager, Lendlease
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Building Information Modelling (BIM) utilises digital media to represent the physical and functional properties of a structure. BIM transcends the traditional 2D technical drawings to accommodate all 3 dimensions, while also enhancing the same with additional dimensions of time, cost, environmental sustainability and life cycle facility management. Join Mr. Liam Corscadden and Mr. Matt Drake in an informative session that will shed light on the world of BIM, its applications and its scope in Australia.
Tough Is Not Enough
Date:
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30
Event:
S.A. Events
Presenter:
Steve Posselt
Venue:
Engineers Australia South Australia - Level 11, 108 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Synopsis:
Steve Posselt will take you on an incredible journey with his wheeled kayak. The only person to have paddled up the Mississippi in a flood, Steve will have you spellbound as he makes his way to Paris for the COP21 Climate Summit. The climate change message, that is the science has not sunk in where it is needed. The message is correct but the messaging has failed. Steve will give you some clues as to how our imperfect brains work, and how to tailor communication approaches to suit.
Transitioning Built Environment to Zero Net Emissions by 2050
Date:
Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Drushti Chandarana, Professor Sujeeva Setunge, Michael Li
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
This event explores emissions from infrastructure materials and how we might transition the sector to net zero emissions by 2050. When and how do we start planning for an orderly transition? What are the roles of Government and the market? Can we find the material and energy solutions to meet predicted demands?
Restorative Engineering - Rebuilding the Environment
Date:
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
William Glamore, Water Research Laboratory UNSW and Kylie Russell, Port Stephens Fisheries Institute
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Restorative engineering is a new approach to engineering of ecosystems to manage complex and endangered ecological communities. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach to understand natural systems so that they can be reconstructed biomimetically.
The Sustainable Hydrogen/Ammonia Economy
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr. Patrick Hartley, Mr Martin Hablutzel & Mr Tim Forcey
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Clean hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier and feedstock that can enable deep decarbonisation across the energy and industrial sectors. Australia has the resources and skills to build an economically sustainable domestic and export hydrogen industry which can help meet emissions targets by replacing fossil fuels in transport, mining and power generation, and address concerns around energy security.
Energy Storage, Marine Permaculture, Food and Border Security, Ecosystem Regeneration, Oceanic Carbon Sinks
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:00
Event:
QLD Events
Presenter:
Brian Von Herzen, PhD
Venue:
Hawken Auditorium Engineering House 447 Upper Edward Street Brisbane , Queensland , 4000
Synopsis:
Brian Von Herzen, Ph.D will be speaking on the topic of needing affordable energy storage globally to allow for greater penetration of renewables, particularly photovoltaic, and then describe underwater compressed energy storage (UWCAES) and pumped thermal energy storage (PTES), how it relates to the 50% renewable energy usage commitment Queensland has committed to by 2030. Even 100% renewables will not be enough to restore a healthy climate.
