Professor Graham (Gus) Nathan is an internationally recognised researcher leading decarbonisation transformation in heavy industry.
Heavy industry encompasses activity such as construction of large-scale infrastructure and accounts for nearly one-third of Australia’s direct carbon emissions.
Gus jointly led the development of the Gyro-therm burner – which achieves a 50% reduction in nitrous oxide emissions – for use in the cement, lime and alumina industries. He is also partnering with industry to solve challenges in new carbon capture technology for cement and lime production.
A strategic leader, Gus is the Research Director of the $215m Heavy Industry, Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre and provides high-quality advice to policy makers on topics such as low-emissions technology and hydrogen.
