C-Capture appoints Philip O’Rourke as IT and Data Services Lead

C-Capture, developers of world-leading chemical processes for the removal of carbon dioxide, are delighted to welcome Philip O’Rourke as IT and Data Services Lead.

Philip joins the team to enhance the company’s cybersecurity and IT and information systems as C-Capture’s rapid growth continues. The company aims to double the size of their diverse and talented team over the next two years as C-Capture demonstrates, then deploys, its unique carbon capture technology internationally, across a broad range of industrial sectors.

An accomplished, hands-on technology leader, Philip has over 25 years of experience delivering technology-driven innovation for business development within the public and private sectors. He has been an early adopter of cloud computing solutions and ‘cloud-first’ IT strategies throughout his career.

As well as technical input, Philip brings significant regulatory compliance expertise, with an established background in rapid-growth science and technology start-ups.

Philip said: “There aren’t too many opportunities to join a firm with a flourishing and enviable reputation in carbon capture, and the potential for global scale and impact in the race to combat climate change. I will be working to develop and secure the information management systems and build upon the culture of innovation and quality at C-Capture.”

Philip added: “The climate emergency is the challenge of many lifetimes. As a father of three, I relish the opportunity to apply my skills and experience to help C-Capture succeed for the generations to come.

C-Capture’s next generation carbon capture technology is an innovation in the sector, based on fundamentally different chemistry than current commercially available solutions. Environmentally benign and lower cost, Capture’s innovative solution uses less energy and is robust enough to withstand even the most challenging flue gases – meaning it has the potential to overcome barriers to effective carbon capture and storage technology and help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
