Editor's Note:Two weeks ago, we debuted a new channel on CSRwire with Noble Profit to focus on short video interviews with key leaders in the sustainability field. These interviews share insights from corporate leaders who are actually creating profitable sustainable business practices and adopting clean tech, dispelling the myth that zero harm costs more.
Through these conversations, Noble Profit will explore the question of value, providing unique insight into today's trends with inventors, investors, sustainable business experts, and thought leaders. This week's interviewee: Dr. Ryan Wartena, scientist and inventor of Growing Energy Lab, Inc. [GELI]
Did we ever think that the stuff of life could be the stuff we run cars on?
Water can be transformed into fuel, as presented by Dr. Ryan Wartena. In this video interview with Noble Profit, Wartena explains how the water electrolysis process can generate oxygen and hydrogen, which in turn can be utilized as a fossil fuel replacement within our already existing combustion engine vehicle fleet.
Implementation could occur at the global scale and would demonstrate a significant technological bridge beyond reliance on our current energy sources. Wartena highlights a resurgence in the interest for newly developed technologies that can manifest a ten-fold magnitude shift in society’s relationship to energy.
Ryan Wartena, Ph.D., is a chemical engineer and postdoctorate at MIT in the Department of Material Science and Engineering, developing small and distributed energy systems and applications for social autonomy with a concentration in electrochemical devices and assembly of energy systems for nanotechnology. Poster child for the Clean Tech Open, Ryan was a semi-finalist of the annual competition to identify and nurture promising startups in this space.
