Forrest Research Foundation Presentation – Applications of Cryogenic Fluids: From Liquefied Natural Gas to Saturn’s Moon Titan

June 23, 2020

When: Wednesday 24 June 2020 at 6:30 pm

Where: Zoom Meeting (Link is provided below) – Forrest Research Foundation (Forrest Hall), the presentation will be recorded.

In this presentation, Dr Arman Siahvashi will discuss some of the LNG research results and how the knowledge can be utilised in other fields, such as liquefaction of hydrogen and dissolution geology of Saturn’s moon Titan.

About the presenter:

Dr Arman Siahvashi is a postdoctoral research fellow at UWA’s Australian Centre for LNG Futures. He commenced his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Eric May where he developed an innovative apparatus (CryoSolids) to accurately measure the freezing and melting temperature of impurities at cryogenic LNG temperatures. These data are critical to help avoid the unwanted LNG plant shutdowns due to the blockages caused by the freeze-out of those impurities. The application of his research has gone beyond LNG to liquid hydrogen (LH2) and also space science.

He has recently received the prestigious Fulbright Fellowship  where he will establish new collaborations and work with the world’s best researchers at the U.S National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Colorado School of Mines to generate unique data that have not been measured previously with direct impact on the energy industry and space science in Australia and the U.S. His work helps the environment by reducing carbon emissions, improves plant operation safety and risk assessments, and drives economic growth and sustainable development. Arman has also received several other awards including ExxonMobil Student Scientist of the Year and Australia’s National Measurement Institute Prize in 2018.
