Indonesia’s Scientific Diaspora Launches ‘Matchmaking’ Scheme to Boost Global Research Collaboration

September 4, 2020

Researchers from the Inter­na­tion­al Indone­sian Schol­ars Asso­ci­a­tion (I4) have launched a new “match­mak­ing” plat­form to con­nect sci­en­tists based in Indone­sia with those work­ing abroad. The goal is to improve the country’s inter­na­tion­al col­lab­o­ra­tion in sci­en­tif­ic research. Research Min­is­ter Bam­bang Brod­jone­goro hopes this pro­gram will be a new mile­stone on Indonesia’s jour­ney to becom­ing a devel­oped coun­try with a research-dri­ven econ­o­my. “To achieve this, sci­en­tists at home must work hand in hand with our dias­po­ra to opti­mise the pool of tal­ent and resources,” he said. I4 announced the pro­gram last week dur­ing Indonesia’s annu­al World Schol­ars Forum (Forum Cen­dekia Kelas Dunia) – held via a two-day Zoom con­fer­ence and Youtube live stream.

Postdoctoral – PV Cell Recycling 2020

August 20, 2020

Project Title Elec­tri­­cal­­ly-Enhanced Recy­cling and Refin­ing of End-of-Life Sil­i­con Pho­to­volta­ic Cells – Process Upscale Posi­tion Pur­pose A Post­doc­tor­al researcher posi­tion (Lev­el A6/B1, Full time/1.0 FTE, 2 years dura­tion) is avail­able for asuit­able can­di­date to under­take the project on “Elec­tri­­cal­­ly-Enhanced Recy­cling and Refin­ing of End-of-Life Sil­i­con Pho­to­volta­ic Cells – Process Upscale”. The suc­cess­ful appli­cant will car­ry out the research project close­ly with Swin­burne Researchers, CSIRO (Com­mon­wealth Sci­en­tif­ic and Indus­tri­al Research Organ­i­sa­tion, Aus­tralia) and relat­ed indus­try part­ners. There is a gen­uine world­wide prob­lem of a grow­ing gen­er­a­tion of WEEE (waste elec­tri­cal and elec­tron­ic equip­ment), i.e. about 40 mil­lion tonnes per year. WEEE con­tains of more than 40 ele­ments includ­ing the strate­gic met­als and haz­ardous ele­ments. The con­cen­tra­tions of the strate­gic met­als in the WEEE are high­er com­pared to that of in their respec­tive under­ground ores. This makes them suit­able as sec­ondary met­als sources. End-of-Life (EOL) Pho­to­volta­ic (PV) cell is also con­sid­ered as WEEE. Con­sid­er­ing the aver­age pan­el life­time of 25 years, the glob­al solar PV waste is antic­i­pat­ed to be between 4–14% of total gen­er­a­tion capac­i­ty by 2030 and rise to over 80% (~78 mil­lion tonnes) by 2050. In addi­tion to the Si, EOL PV cell con­tain very valu­able Ag which is used as met­alli­sa­tion pastes/inks in the cell. There is also a prob­lem of Si kerf (slur­ry) waste gen­er­at­ed from man­u­fac­tur­ing process of PV Cell (account for up to 45% loss of ultra­pure mate­ri­als), totalling to approx­i­mate­ly 160,000 tonnes/year (and increas­ing if not processed). click here for more info

The mas­ters project is part of a broad­er project to devel­op a unique pyromet­al­lur­gi­cal process that allows high vol­ume and high through­put recy­cling and pro­cess­ing of end-of-life (EoL) Si Pho­to­volta­ic (PV)-cells and alter­na­tive sil­i­con source (e.g. Si kerf). The process involves the appli­ca­tion of volt­age through elec­trodes placed across molten sil­i­con and slag phas­es dur­ing slag refin­ing reac­tions. This results in the removal of impu­ri­ties (such as Boron (B) and Phos­pho­rus ℗) at much faster rates and high­er amounts com­pared to the reg­u­lar slag refin­ing or cur­rent Si pro­duc­tion process; and at the same time pro­motes max­i­mum recov­ery of high val­ue Sil­ver (Ag) from EOL-PV, mak­ing the over­all recy­cling process eco­nom­i­cal­ly attrac­tive.

PhD Grant Available ‑Wagenigen University — Developing scenarios for sustainable land use in fish and dairy production systems in Indonesia

July 16, 2020

With­in the project Smart Indone­sian Agri­cul­ture (SMART-IN-AG) A PhD grant is avail­able for the top­ic of: “Devel­op­ing sce­nar­ios for sus­tain­able land use in fish and dairy pro­duc­tion sys­tems in Indone­sia” Back­ground The demand for ani­mal pro­tein, both fish and dairy, is increas­ing in Indone­sia. Both sec­tors are there­forelook­ing for ways to increase their pro­duc­tion, how­ev­er, there are con­straints. The avail­abil­i­ty of land and­fresh water is lim­it­ed. There­fore, in order to increase pro­duc­tion with­out fur­ther pres­sure on land and­wa­ter, cur­rent pro­duc­tion sys­tems need to become more sus­tain­able and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly interms of pro­duc­tion, envi­ron­men­tal impact and resource use effi­cien­cy. At present it is dif­fi­cult toeval­u­ate cur­rent farm­ing sys­tems since data isn’t always col­lect­ed in a lon­gi­tu­di­nal and struc­turedman­ner.Smart farm­ing in dairy and fish sys­tems allows to col­lect data in a lon­gi­tu­di­nal man­ner and to eval­u­atethe cur­rent pro­duc­tion sys­tems, par­tic­u­lar­ly on the required inputs and employed management/practicaltech­niques, and to improve the lev­el of ani­mal pro­duc­tion in Indone­sia. Using this data, risk fac­tors andman­age­ment issues that block sus­tain­able pro­duc­tion will be iden­ti­fied. The col­lect­ed infor­ma­tion will bepro­vid­ed back to farm­ers through tech­nolo­gies such as apps to aid them to improve on-farm pro­duc­tioneffi­cien­cy.

PhD Grant Available ‑Wagenigen University — Disease and production monitoring using Big Data analytics

July 16, 2020

Back­ground The envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tion of the fish farm sites are impor­tant since they are the basic val­ues for the deter­mi­na­tion of the bal­ance between fish farm­ing activ­i­ties and its recip­i­ent envi­ron­ment. Pro­duc­ing fish in a sus­tain­able way is chal­leng­ing, as low effi­cien­cies increase the envi­ron­men­tal bur­den of aqua­cul­ture as well as reduces prof­itabil­i­ty. By improv­ing both effi­cien­cy and yield the sec­tor could grow with­out increas­ing its envi­ron­men­tal impact. Today deci­sions are main­ly based on empiri­cism rather than accu­rate data. Incor­po­ra­tion of SMART tech­nolo­gies for con­trol­ling the basic para­me­ters aims to pro­vide fish farm­ers with clear­er insight in their fish pro­duc­tion for exam­ple by data on oxy­gen and tem­per­a­ture, feed demand and fish behav­iour. Sen­sors can pro­vide infor­ma­tion that facil­i­tates con­tin­u­ous pro­duc­tion and envi­ron­men­tal improve­ment. SMART fish farm­ing tech­nolo­gies have the poten­tial to improve the effi­cien­cy, reduce ener­gy use and green­house gas­es emis­sion, labour costs, and fish dis­eases, and can stim­u­late the under­stand­ing of the pro­duc­tion process as well as pro­tect­ing the envi­ron­ment. Although the intro­duc­tion of tech­nolo­gies gen­er­al­ly sup­port mod­ern­iza­tion, the devel­op­ment and use of smart tech­nol­o­gy in Indone­sian aqua­cul­ture is still under­de­vel­oped. At present, we do not have a clear view of the tech­nolo­gies imple­ment­ed, the effect on Indone­sian fish farm­ing sys­tems, and the poten­tial of new tech­nolo­gies.
