Former U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu joined the Board of Directors of Vancouver-based Inventys Thermal Technologies.
Chu is currently the William R. Kenan, Jr. professor of Physics and professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology at Stanford University. Chu was director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of California, Berkeley before he became secretary of the DOE. Dr. Chu won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997 for “development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light.”
Inventys has developed a method for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal and natural gas-fired power plants, which can then be injected underground for carbon capture and storage, enhanced oil recovery or in such industrial applications such as chemical manufacturing.
