The North West Section invite you to show your support for some of the industry's greatest young minds as they showcase their innovative projects and innovations in the local area.

The YPPC is a competition organised and run annually by IGEM since 2002 for young gas professionals and students aged between 18 and 35 years. Initially a paper competition, it has evolved to encourage greater participation and now focuses on presentation rather than written skills.

The entrants are:

  • Daniel Burdett, Senior CFD Engineer, Oxford
  • Eleanor Humphreys, Process Engineer, Thyson Technology Ltd
  • Shamsudeen Bello, Engineering Graduate, Cadent 

Come along to Salford University and encourage the North West Section entrants as they compete for a spot in the YPPC final.

Not only will the winning entrant secure a place in the YPPC final, they will receive £250 and have their paper published in IGEM’s journal, Gas International (Gi).

The Section heat runner-up will receive £100.

The Section will also be holding their AGM. The current Section Chair, Nick Jerman, will present an overview of the past year and present their vision for the coming year.

The Annual General Meeting will follow the normal agenda:

• Receiving the year end statement of accounts from the Treasurer

• Receiving the annual report of the Management Committee from the current Chair
