Former Energy Secretary Chu Joins Board of Canadian Carbon Capture Startup

Dec 18, 2013
(New York Times)

A Canadian company with a radically different approach to capturing carbon pollution from power plants has won an influential endorsement from Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and a former secretary of energy, who is joining the company’s board.

The company, Inventys Thermal Technologies, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, will announce Dr. Chu’s appointment on Wednesday. Inventys has been working in a crucial area that has been mostly neglected: capturing carbon dioxide from natural gas.
