Overview

Dr Reydick D. Balucan is a geochemist who contributes to research in (a) CO2 capture-storage-utilisation via mineralisation and (b) advanced environmetal technologies for coal permeability enhancement.

He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering (The University of Newcastle, UoN) in Feb 2013 and his B.S. in Chemistry (Philippines) in 2004. Prior to his research work in Australia, he worked as a geoscientific chemist in the geothermal industry and taught undergraduate chemistry in the Philippines.

His current research interests include permeability enhancement of coal for coal seam gas production and the development of integrated chemical process for direct CO2 capture-mineralisation and metals recovery
