Dr Trevor Stuthridge
AboutTrevor has been Scion’s Group Manager for Sustainable Design since 2008. He was previously Unit Leader - Eco-Smart Technologies at Scion; a research team developing technologies for the treatment of industrial waste streams and their transformation and/or modification into added value products.
He is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto and a member of technical/management committees for a range of international associations and research partnerships. He is also serves as the Scion representative on the Board of Directors for Beacon Pathways Ltd – an industry/government funded collaborative research consortium focused on making New Zealand homes more socially and environmentally sustainable.
Trevor continues to pursue active research through national and international collaborations related to i) advanced biotechnologies and biorefineries for the production of added value biomaterials, bioplastics and biofuels from industrial wastes and lignocellulosics; ii) environmental technologies for remediation of recalcitrant pollutants and water in primary industries and their recipient ecosystems; and iii) the characterisation, environmental behaviour and ecological impacts of anthropogenic pollutants.
More generally, the Group Manager role has provided great opportunities to extend his interests into the development of sustainability and environmental policy frameworks, landscape design, clean technologies, education and outreach, social research and product design opportunities.
