Super proud for this student team from UNSW who have won second place (Runner up) at the recent Hackathon organised by IChemE and Future Fuels CRC at Chemeca 2023 in Melbourne. The Hackathon challenge was to conceptually design a net zero carbon future fuels infrastructure solution across Australia and New Zealand. The multidisciplinary team called themselves 'Fuelture' consisted of two PhD students: Michael Gunawan (GlobH2E student), Koentadi Hadinoto (Chem Eng), and four undergraduate students: Dylan Goh (Comp Eng), Annika Kerwick (GlobH2E student), Yimeng Jin (GlobH2E student) and Tristan Salter (GlobH2E student). During Chemeca, the finalists were asked to test their proposals with Chemeca participants, address an ethical question relating to their proposal and deliver a compelling proposal in order to convince judging panel for funding their idea.
The idea proposed b the Fuelture Team also won the AGIT prize for the most innovative use of existing gas infrastructure. As a runner up at Hackathon competition, the team won a mentoring opportunity with Future Fuels CRC, AUD200 per team member and visit to Toyota Hydrogen Centre at Altona.

Congratulations Fuelture and all finalist of Hackathon - you all done a fantastic job!
