C-Capture, a UK-based designer of chemical processes for carbon dioxide removal, has appointed Tom White as its new CEO.

White holds a strong technical foundation in carbon capture and storage (CCS), and joins C-Capture from BadrEOR, an oilfield services company based in Oman, where he served as CEO for three years.

“Tom’s expertise in chemical engineering perfectly complements the development of C-Capture’s technology and the strength of Tom’s business development expertise will help in C-Capture’s rapid expansion,” said Tristan Fischer, Chairman of C-Capture.

As a former officer in the Corps of Royal Engineers, White also serves as Vice-President Regions of the Board of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, responsible for the governance of overseas entities and for representing its 20,000 non-UK members.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining C-Capture at this pivotal time; its award-winning carbon capture solution is exactly what UK and global industry need to achieve cost-effective decarbonisation,” said White.

“C-Capture’s novel solvent technology is viable on a large scale and offers a safe, low-cost way to remove carbon dioxide from emissions sources such as power stations, cement and steel works.”

“When coupled with sustainably sourced biofuels, C-Capture is able to achieve carbon-negative power, which is revolutionary. The time for large scale deployment of CCS is now and C-Capture’s solution represents a step change in performance and existing technologies.”
