Ms Felicity Lloyd has been appointed as the new CEO of the Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre (HiLT CRC).

Ms Lloyd is currently National Business Improvement and Sustainability Manager for Adbri, a Core Partner in the HILT CRC.

Australia’s leading companies in the heavy industrial sector have embarked on a program that will enable a step-change in the rate at which they transition toward zero net-carbon emissions through the Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre (HILT CRC).

The University of Adelaide’s Professor Gus Nathan led the bid for the HILT CRC. The CRC was awarded $39 million in cash support over 10 years from the Australian Government to unlock more than $175 million investment from its partners which are located around the country, and fund the leading collaborative venture between heavy industry, government and researchers, who will accelerate the transition to a sustainable future.

Ms Lloyd currently serves as Industry Lead for Program 2 in the CRC.  She is a chemical engineer and graduate of the University of Adelaide and has been involved in the University’s Centre for Energy Technology.

A recruitment firm was engaged to assist with the recruitment of the CEO, and the position was advertised. A selection panel established by the HILT CRC interviewed applicants and determined Ms Lloyd to be the most outstanding candidate.

Felicity will commence as the HILT CRC CEO in December 2021.
