Costain engineer and CICES’ first black president to champion ‘adding value through collaboration’. As President, Mr Motsumi will lead CICES, which is recognised as the foremost UK-based professional institution for specialists employed in geospatial engineering and commercial management in the civil engineering industry. Founded in 1969, this is the first time that a person of colour has been elected to lead the organisation.
“Mine rehabilitation is a key part of a company’s life of mine planning cycle to ensure better environmental outcomes and help create more jobs for Queenslanders after a mine is no longer in use,” Minister Stewart said.
Fugro provides geotechnical expertise for clean fuel project in Louisiana in the United States

St. Charles Clean Fuels, LLC (SCCF), a collaboration between Sustainable Fuels Group, LLC, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners Energy‑Transition Fund, has contracted with Fugro to provide geotechnical engineering services for an innovative 'blue' ammonia facility in southeastern Louisiana. The project aims to seamlessly integrate ammonia production with advanced carbon capture and storage methods, creating a clean resource for fuel, industrial power, food production, and other essential needs, all while significantly reducing the project’s overall emissions profile.
Geotechnical investigations are underway, with final deliverables expected by year-end. This work builds on Fugro’s earlier contributions to the project, which included site suitability assessments during the feasibility stage. Currently, Fugro is dedicated to providing valuable insights about the intricate subsurface conditions at the site, which is located near the Mississippi River. Leveraging their extensive expertise in settlement management, soil stabilisation, and foundation optimisation, Fugro will play a pivotal role in ensuring the facility’s successful design.
SCCF Project Director Ramesh Raman stated: “Our project is pleased to have the extensive regional experience of the Fugro team supporting this important clean energy development project. Our strategy is to maximise the involvement of local and regional expertise in support of delivering our low-carbon, low-emissions fuels product to the global energy market. Louisiana has long held a leadership position in energy development, and our blue ammonia facility in St. Charles Parish contributes an important role through the transition to a lower carbon economy.”
Fugro Gulf Coast Business Development Manager for Fugro Jack Koban stated: “The development of low-carbon fuels combined with carbon capture and storage technology is a critical piece of the energy and climate action puzzle. The energy industry and the state of Louisiana have committed to tackling these important issues through innovation, and the St. Charles Clean Fuels project is a tremendous example of that. As a locally-based and trusted provider of leading Geo-data solutions, we’re very proud to be a part of this forward-thinking project.”

Turning the tide: Ghana's innovative approach to tackle marine plastic pollution with citizen science
Working with IIASA researchers, Ghana has adopted a citizen science approach to addressing the problem of plastic pollution in marine environments, becoming the first country to integrate this type of data on marine plastic litter into its official monitoring and reporting processes. A new study presents this innovative approach on Ghana’s citizen science journey and offers a pathway that can potentially be adopted in other countries.
