Gavin is a Chartered Chemical Engineer, with over 25 years experience in industry, including wastewater and solid waste treatment technologies. Gavin has acted as Technical Lead on several Energy from Waste projects in the UK, including Combustion, Gasification and Anaerobic Digestion projects. A critical success factor in all of these projects was the optimal end use of the process residues – from incinerator ashes, to Air Pollution Control residues to anaerobic digestate, to name but a few.
With a background in process engineering and consulting, and training in innovation and creativity techniques, Gavin is the Director of Consulting and Innovation at Cobalt Energy. Gavin and his team are responsible for exploring and developing the emerging technologies that represent the next wave of sustainability in the Energy from Waste sector, including “Waste-to-Chemical”, CCSU and Energy Storage.
As with the previous generation of technologies, a critical success factor will remain the optimal end use of the process residues.
