John Radcliffe to chair Water Recycling Centre of Excellence

The Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence Research Advisory Committee has appointed Dr John Radcliffe (pictured alongside) as Chairperson.

Radcliffe – who currently chairs the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) Water Forum, is a Council Member of the University of Adelaide and Chairman of the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Eminent Scientists Group – began his new role with the Research Advisory Committee in July.

“I believe that the Centre of Excellence has an important part to play in progressing water recycling research and development in Australia,” he said.

“The Centre can help the nation both prepare for its own growth, and potentially contribute to greater international adoption of water recycling, including among other things, to meeting an expanding world food demand.”

Previously a Commissioner with the National Water Commission, Deputy Chief Executive of CSIRO and South Australian Director-General of Agriculture, Radcliffe was Chair of the Board of the South Australian Research and Development Institute from 1993 to 1998.

Radcliffe is author of Water Recycling in Australia published by ATSE in 2004, as well as an update on water recycling in Australia published in Water Science and Technology in 2010.
