TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 28 2021 NEWS 03 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA STUDENT AWARD OPENS APPLICATIONS are open for the Study NT International Student of the Year Award. It recognises and celebrates international students studying in the Territory who have made a positive impact on their local and fellow student communities, while also excelling in their field of study. Last years winner, Manfred Mletsin from Estonia who recently graduated with a bachelor of accounting from Charles Darwin University, urged international students to apply. Winning the Study NT International Student of the Year Award in 2020 helped me to realise that the volunteering experience I have gained over the years can be used in the professional world, he said. Nominations close 4pm, November 5, and must be submitted via email to StudyNT@nt.gov.au Driver charged over serious crash A WOMAN has been charged in relation to the crash that led to the death of 71-year-old Jan Flis. On September 5 about 8.20am, a car collided with a motorcycle, driven by Mr Flis, at the intersection of Charles Eaton Dr and McMillans Rd. Mr Flis was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital in a serious condition. The driver of the car was not injured. Mr Flis passed away two days later. On Monday, the Major Crash Investigation Unit charged the 63year-old woman with driving a motor vehicle causing death and failing to give way. She will face the Darwin Local Court on November 2. In an interview with the NT News, Mr Flis family members described him as larger than life and a friend to all. He had a positivity that was infectious he was like a tidal wave that pulled you along with him, family members said. Its almost like he was three people bundled into one. He was a scuba diver. He was a golfer. He had an uncanny luck at the pokies. A brother and a grandfather, husband and partner. He was just so many things and he wore so many different hats. Hes just the kind of guy that if he found out somebody is doing their yard or fixing their car, hed just rock up on the doorstep and insist on helping.Manfred Mletsin.

If developed, the hub will be one of the largest multi-user, multi-access hubs in the world. With expertise in hydrogen and carbon capture use and storage, the CSIRO will provide impartial scientific advice, co-ordinate the development of detailed concept designs, build international linkages and conduct geological research and economic and customer studies. Carbon capture, use and storage, is an emerging technology with the potential to reduce emissions from indus stored in underground geological formations or used to create commercial products. The hub would help establish the Territorys Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct, ensure the Territory continues to maximise its world-class energy resources and support development of an interconnected hydrogen industry. Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the Territory was an easy fit for carbon capture investment. We are home to worldclass natural gas and solar resources and subsurface carbon dioxide storage capacity, and we are on the doorstep of key international energy export markets, Mr Gunner said. CSIRO chief executive Larry Marshall said the hub would create jobs and open export pathways. It will give Australia a global advantage by pushing the boundaries of science and technology to put homegrown innovation into realworld demonstration projects, particularly through our hydrogen industry and Towards Net Zero missions, Dr Marshall said. THE NT government, CSIRO and industry and engineering companies will develop a blueprint to assess the viability of a large-scale, low-emissions carbon capture utilisation and storage hub based at Middle Arm. The business case for the hub project is intended to fasttrack emissions reductions across the growing Northern Australian energy sector and position the Territory as a global leader in low-emissions E XC LU S I V E CAMDEN SMITH Government pitching for carbon capture facility at Middle Arm WE ARE HOME TO WORLD-CLASS NATURAL GAS AND SOLAR RESOURCES AND SUBSURFACE CARBON DIOXIDE STORAGE CAPACITY.
