30th October – the ACV/GARDS support group members had a wonderful day out at the Gippsland Folk Museum – Heritage Park in Moe. They had a tour of the park with a very lovely tour guide who arranged for a ride around the park in a vintage car, a silent movie with Charlie Chaplan in their movie theatre and a wonderful two course lunch in the restaurant – there was lots of laughter and much to talk about among friends. The weather was fantastic to top the day off. Pictured below are the group having a wonderful time.
26.10.2018 – ACV/GARDS rep Vicki was at AGL Loy Yang Traralgon at the carbon capture pilot plant site to celebrate 10 years of research into carbon capture and storage – just another new technology being developed in Latrobe Valley – well done AGL, IHI & CSIRO – it was very interesting listening to how this technology works and to hear about other initiatives into carbon capture which are emerging along with technology like Hydrogen for energy use. Others who were in attendance and spoke were those who have been attending The 14th International conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies, known as GHGT-14. The event, held every two years in a different country, is the main global forum to discuss the latest developments in CCS. The Melbourne Convention Centre has hosted the event from Monday the 22nd to 25 October 2018.- some of those from the conference came up by bus today to attend the 10 year celebrations at AGL Loy Yang. It was wonderful to meet so many people from other countries who are looking at ways to control greenhouse gases and take those ideas & projects into the future. Pictured below with Vicki are those attending the carbon capture pilot plant today.
We’ve just added a new page to our website that features interviews and personal stories from people effected by Asbestos Disease.
New videos will be added regularly, so please come back again to take a look.
ACV/GARDS CEO, Vicki, attended Lavalla College, Traralgon to support her VCAL student Jordan, who was doing a presentation of asbestos awareness to 60 of his class mates – Jordan intends to become a plumber – he did a great job of his presentation – There were terrific questions from the students and I must say the students went away from Jordan’s presentation knowing a lot more about asbestos and the issues – more young people who are now much more asbestos aware thanks to Jordan – well done mate – Good luck in your chosen profession – all the best for the future, Jordan
