2018 Speakers

  • Frazer Barnes

    Managing Director ELG Carbon Fibre

    Frazer has more than 30 years’ experience in the composites industry, and for the last 4 years has been heavily involved in carbon fibre recycling. After graduating with a materials science degree, Frazer first worked as a wind turbine blade design engineer before moving into the composites industry with SP Systems (now Gurit). After working on the design and development of composite structures for the marine, oil and gas and defence industries, Frazer moved to DML where he ran the composites business unit, which was a pioneer in the use of carbon fibre to rehabilitate existing civil infrastructure. From 2000 to 2010, Frazer worked for Cytec Engineered Materials in the UK, US and China, culminating in the construction of a composites manufacturing plant in Shanghai. From there, Frazer moved to Hengshen Carbon Fibre where he led efforts to position the company as a global supplier of carbon fibre. It was there that Frazer first became aware of the importance of recycling, leading to a cooperation with Adesso Advanced Materials to evaluate the possibilities of recyclable epoxies. After a short spell assisting Adesso refining its commercial strategies, Frazer returned to the UK to become Managing Director of ELG Carbon Fibre, where he has guided the company through the industrialisation of its carbon fibre recovery process and overseen the expansion of the companies capabilities to produce a range of recycled carbon fibre products for the composites and compounding industries.

  • Derek Buckmaster

    Director Carbon Nexus

    Buckmaster began his career with GE Plastics in Melbourne in 1988, as a CAE design engineer. He then moved to the United States, holding several roles in advanced design engineering and marketing.  Returning to Australia in 1990, Buckmaster became sales manager for GE's Industrial Diamond division.  He held several other roles with the company in Australia, including export sales manager and product technology manager, before moving to Singapore to GE Plastics’ Pacific Headquarters in 1998. There he was the Six Sigma Master Black Belt for marketing and sourcing, focused on improving processes and increasing revenues. He returned to Australia again to oversee marketing and e-Business during the Internet boom.

    Prior to joining GE, Buckmaster worked as the Production Manager for  the Electricaire Division of Braemar Limited (a heating and cooling equipment manufacturer) and conducted research into aerial crop spraying at an Australian government Agricultural Engineering Center.

    Buckmaster holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Swinburne University, Australia.
