The Institute extends its congratulations to Oxyfuel Technologies Pty Ltd and their nominated representative, Dr Chris Spero, on receiving a Medal of the Order of Australia on Australia Day 2018 “for service to science, particularly to oxyfuel technology.” Dr Spero is the only recipient in the category for contribution to science, making this a great individual honour for him, but also an important recognition of the significance of CCS technology.

 

Dr Spero has been the leader of the Callide Oxyfuel Project over a number of years, with the project now being implemented through a Joint Venture comprised of Australian and Japanese interests and his Insights on this project can be found here.
