PostDoc researcher Arman Siahvashi from University of Western Australia’s School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering has been announced one of Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers by Engineers Australia in the Mining, Oil and Gas Category.

Mr Siahvashi developed an apparatus that can measure the freezing temperatures of hydrocarbons at cryogenic temperatures. The data is crucial in preventing 'freeze out' in LNG production which costs the sector billions of dollars a year in shutdowns and can cause damage to the environment.

Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers is an annual program run by create magazine, the publication of Engineers Australia. Now in its fourth year, the Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers listing seeks to recognise engineering innovation and raise the profile of the profession by showcasing the important role engineers play in solving some of the world’s biggest challenges.
