ICE Wales Cymru is co-hosting the lecture with IMechE, IET, EI and CIBSE.

After decades of preliminary research and development, hydrogen is emerging as a viable contributor to the achievement of net-zero carbon emissions for industry, transport and energy sectors. Accomplishing this goal is a major undertaking and will present a number of engineering challenges. This presentation will address the nature and scale of these challenges and the work that is being done to tackle them.

Light Refreshments will be served at 5.30 before the lecture which begins at 6.00pm.

Jon is a Senior Lecturer and the Director of the University of South Wales Hydrogen R&D Centre at Baglan, where he leads the University’s R&D activities on electrolytic hydrogen production, hydrogen energy storage, thermochemical hydrogen production, hydrogen purification, hydrogen for transport and fuel cell applications.

Prior to joining the University, Jon had nearly 20 years of experience in the industrial gases industry, with roles in process design, industrial plant commissioning, major project management, process and engineering management, business management and leadership of a major company innovation programme.

Throughout this industrial experience, Jon had a particular emphasis on hydrogen and he was BOC’s European hydrogen expert as part of their global hydrogen team. This experience supports the mission of the USW Hydrogen R&D Centre to focus on mid- to later TRL R&D into hydrogen and fuel cells, with a strong emphasis on collaboration with industry and government as well as academic partners.
