VANCOUVER, British Columbia —August 31, 2017 — Former Airbus CTO Jean Botti recently joined the Board of Directors of Inventys, a clean energy technology company that has developed a transformational method for capturing CO2 from industrial, natural gas and coal power plants.
“I’m very pleased to join the board of Inventys at such a pivotal time in our history as the world comes together to address decarbonizing the energy sector” said Botti. “I look forward to working closely with the other members of the Board and executive team to help develop new collaboration to spur innovation and to tap into the capabilities of industrial partners and universities needed to commercialize this technology.”
The VeloxoTherm™ System is a next generation CO2-capture technology that has the potential to deliver breakthrough capture costs. By combining a uniquely patented solid adsorbent structure with a rapid cycle temperature swing adsorption process, Inventys has successfully demonstrated economical CO2 capture capabilities with its compact adsorption machine.
Inventys President and CEO Claude Letourneau said, “With extensive experience in managing world-class industrial R&D programs, large-scale product development and market launches, the appointment of Mr. Botti will further strengthen our ability to rapidly scale-up our first pilot plant and to develop a high-quality and reliable manufacturing eco-system.”
Recently Inventys announced plans to build a 30-tonne per day (TPD) CO2-capture pilot plant aimed at producing a low-cost CO2-supply solution for Husky Energy’s heavy oil enhanced oil recovery (EOR) program near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan.
“Jean provides experience launching first-in-the-world technologies and creating market leaders,” Inventys Chairman Wayne G. Thomson said. “He is widely recognized for accelerating development and Inventys will benefit from his global experience building partner relationships.”
Botti was Chief Technical Officer of Airbus Group from 2006 to 2016 where he was responsible for research and development, business development, and program management. During this time he created the 25-year roadmap for electric aviation and delivered the world’s first electrical aircraft in 2015.
Inventys is a clean energy technology company with a credible solution for capturing point-source CO2 emissions and accelerating the global transition to a low-carbon economy. The VeloxoTherm™ process combines Inventys’ patented Adsorbent Structure and rapid cycle thermal swing process to achieve unmatched economics. Unlike conventional methods, this three-step process maximizes carbon capture productivity, cuts capital costs, and reduces regeneration energy.
