Lismore artist Neil Liddell's contribution to the anti-CSG movement has been in painting the portrait of scientist Colin Putt.

The portrait has been selected to hang in the Celebrating Innovators exhibition at Parliament House, Canberra on November 2.

A lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Sydney, Putt's self-financed research into recycling coal seam gas water is a vital innovation in cleaning up this toxic industry.

Colin Putt is also an Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year, co-founder of the Oceanic Research Foundation and member of the Explorers Club of Australia & NZ.

The exhibition celebrates those involved in research,inventors, creative thinkers, harbingers of change, social reform and cultural shifts.
