Dr Vladimir Strezov, Faculty of Science
This nomination is to recognise the industrial applications of the thermo-analytical techniques designed by Associate Professor Vladimir Strezov and applied in service, consulting activities and collaborative research programs with several Australian primary industries in the area of industrial ecology.
The work comprised of thermal characterisation of materials, monitoring energy required for their processing, and understanding fundamental properties responsible for pollutant formation at source. The industries benefited from improved energy efficiency and pollution reduction.
The partnerships established through this service resulted in a strong research platform for Macquarie University with significant success in collaborative research performance.
