Inter-primary public speaking competition

On 25 August, students from local schools, including Canterbury Primary and Hartwell Primary, spoke in the inter-primary public speaking competition in Camberwell.

It was a pleasure to deliver the keynote speech at the Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA) 14th National Small Business Summit on 24 August in Melbourne.

Each year, COSBOA brings together policy makers and industry leaders to strengthen partnerships critical to the future success of small business in Australia.

In my speech, I spoke about the importance of affordable and reliable energy for Australian small businesses and the Turnbull Government efforts to deliver such as we transition to a lower emissions future.

On 23 August, I had the pleasure of visiting biocrude-oil production company, Muradel, in Whyalla with local member Rowan Ramsey.

Muradel has developed technology that can be integrated into existing wastewater treatment plants to sustainably manage sludges and biosolids by producing biocrude-oil.

The biocrude-oil can then be fractioned into various fuel products and petrochemicals that have a smaller carbon footprint than traditional crude oils.

Thanks to the Chief Executive Officer, Ross Mierendorff, and the Muradel team for hosting us.
