President and CEO, Xebec Adsorption
Driving a kilometer using fossil fuels emits between 100 and 164 grams of CO2E. But using renewable natural gas (RNG) captured from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste materials in municipal landfills, agricultural and industrial processes or waste water treatment plants produces just 5 grams! With that in mind, Kurt led Xebec’s team to develop a state-of-the-art low cost solution that captures 99% of digester and landfill gas to produce RNG as a carbon neutral, cellulosic bio-fuel in both Europe and North America, as well as Renewable Hydrogen Gas for fuel cell applications in transport and power generation. Sales for 2017 are estimated to almost double to $17 million.
