Innovations makes the most of waste

Albert & Logan News –  April 20, 2017

Logan’s leading innovators showcased their work and shared ideas at last month’s Myriad Festival.

Among them was Substation 33 manager Tony Sharp, who turns archaic computers into useful technologies, such as 3D printers, for local schools.

Earlier this year his team created early warning flood signs that don’t require human instruction.

“This means people know that the road is flooded without someone having go and put a sign up,” he said.

Woodridge state MP Cameron Dick said the inventions were inspiring.

“Tony and the team at the electronic waste recycling centre have been setting the standard for workplaces where employees and volunteers can gain confidence and skills to transition to sustainable employment,” Mr Dick said.

“They’ve been applauded as environmental leaders and I am pleased to see a myriad doors continue to open for these role models within our community.”
