The IChemE Scottish Members Group committee (SMG) provides a local platform for the fulfilment of IChemE’s objectives, delivers a consistent and engaging programme of activities, meets the needs of our specific community, stimulates increased member involvement in IChemE activities and, in doing so, enhances the value associated with membership. It is entirely made up of volunteers who give some of their time and their enthusiasm to the community.
During the AGM, we will elect new Committee Members from within our member group, including a new Chair (or Co-Chairs), new Treasurer and a new Secretary.
For more details on the available positions within this committee, please contact the current Chair and Secretary;
- Dimitri Mignard - firstname.lastname@example.org
- Karthik Arunachalam - email@example.com
Preceeding the AGM, Professor Ding will present a summary of his research on Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) and on the industrial deployment of LAES, to which he has greatly contributed. In particular, a first in the industry is Highview Power Ltd’s 5 MW, 15 MWh demonstration scale plant in Pilsworth (Greater Manchester) on one of Viridor’s landfill sites. The plant has been storing electricity from the grid since April 2018. It also converts low-grade waste heat from the GE Jenbacher landfill gas engines to power.
You are welcome to join us after the technical talk to take part in our 11th Annual General Meeting for the IChemE's Scottish Members Group (SMG).
