President and CEO, EnvAerospace, Inc.

Jonathan Webster’s EnvAerospace, Inc. has created EcoBlade technology. Within 6 months of use, large turbine engines begin to lose compression, which in turn reduces their power output by 15% within a year. In energy production, that means a 15% less output for the same natural gas input. EcoBlade is technology that extends full compression for years – resulting in dramatically increased output.  GE Energy and GE Aviation, now in validation mode with power generators, hope that the same technology might later be applied to airline engines, improving fuel consumption by 2% or more. Net, once deployed widely, the potential for massive savings in consumption.
