Professor Zhiguo Yuan, Director of UQ’s Advanced Water Management Centre, received the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) Clunies Ross Award. The Clunies Ross Award recognises outstanding achievements in the application of science and technology for the benefit of the wider community.

Professor Zhiguo Yuan won the award for his work over the past decade with sewer systems. His team has delivered fundamental solutions to corrosion and odour management in sewers, changing the water industry’s capability and practices in managing this global problem. His innovative technologies have also helped save water providers hundreds of millions of dollars.

During 2015, Professor Zhiguo Yuan was also elected as a Fellow of ATSE. ATSE fellowships recognise Australia’s leading minds in technology and engineering, and are awarded to people who apply technology in smart, strategic ways for social, environmental and economic benefit. This prestigious fellowship is a fitting acknowledgement of Professor Yuan’s enormous contribution to the field of water management in Australia and internationally.
