With a background in creative materials technology, marine operations, engineering and agriculture, combined with 24 years’ experience in environmental consulting and provision of waste management solutions, Charles has cultivated a penetrating understanding of natural and mechanical systems which he applies to environmental technologies and the delivery of cost-effective results.
Charles has an acute ability to identify interfacing technologies that enable specific outcomes. He has provided consulting, waste management plans and the implementation of environmental solutions to many of Australia’s largest companies.
Additionally, Charles has an extraordinarily wide network of international technology providers, innovators, prototyper’s and solutions providers. This has given rise to projects in Canada, USA, South America, Holland, Germany, New Zealand, Australia and the islands of the South-West Pacific.
Charles uses his understanding of natural symmetries, patterns and systems to inform and identify specific outcomes and identifies financially viable and technically achievable technological pathways of the delivery of those outcomes. Charles is articulate in his ability to communicate ideas in both general and technical terms.
Charles has been granted Adjunct Status at University of Queensland while working on a photo-catalysis of water to hydrogen project and worked with Professor Max Lu to successfully apply for a $1.8 million ARC Linkage Grant,
Has served on the Industry Advisory Board at Griffith University School of Biomolecular & Physical Sciences
Associations with QUT in regard to technology evaluation solar peripheral technologies and
Liaison with the CSIRO regarding super critical water gasification and oxidation of aqueous waste streams including sewage sludge
Charles was awarded on the 22 of October 2013 an Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy in Physical Sciences (Environmental Engineering) facilitated by the Bircham International University in New Zealand from the International University Of Fundamental Studies Oxford Educational Network California University Fce, Ca, USA International Parliament For Safety And Peace, Faculty Of Physical Sciences. Charles is collaborating with Trevor Osborn's World Harmony, is on the advisory board of The Colorado Center:
