Formerly the Australasian Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition, AOG Energy is the cornerstone of a broader offering and a platform for innovation in all aspects with a renewed focus on the energy transition, including hydrogen, renewables and emissions reduction technology.
Supplementing the AOG Energy Virtual Event content on Thursday 29 April is a live programme from Scottish Development International (SDI), Scotland’s trade and investment agency, to deliver a bespoke virtual trade mission program ‘Scotland at AOG Energy’.
TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is participating at the virtual event as part of Scotland at AOG Energy, showcasing its energy transition capabilities and solutions to the challenges faced by the global energy industry.
Dr Martin Hanton, Technical Director, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory will be presenting at AOG Energy LIVE Scotland Showcase on 29 April at 7.25 AEST on the topic of “The role of flow measurement in enabling a hydrogen economy”. In the oil and gas sectors, flow meters are the 'cash registers', as fiscal and financial transactions are based upon flow measurements. In a decarbonised energy system, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, ammonia, etc, are all liquids and gases, and so flow meters will be the 'cash registers' of the net-zero economy as well.
Dr Martin Hanton
With a background in petrochemicals (at Sasol) and nearly two decades experience of working with hydrogen, Martin joined TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory in 2018 to spearhead the diversification of the organisation beyond oil and gas. As a result, the organisation is now working on hydrogen and CCS, along with the water industry, and life sciences and healthcare sectors. The focus on hydrogen is how accurate measurement, combined with standards and regulation, is a key enabler of a hydrogen economy. Dr Hanton holds BSc and PhD degrees in Chemistry from the University of Leicester, and an MBA from the Open University. He is a Chartered Chemist, and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
