Fortera announced the appointment of Scott Healy as chief financial officer. The addition of a senior leader from the financial energy sector will hone strategy and promote the various value streams present in the portfolio of CO2 reduction solutions available from Fortera.
“Fortera’s mission is to meaningfully reduce the CO2 impact in the production of cement. To accomplish this goal, the company has embarked on an ambitious plan to build commercial plants globally. Adding Scott to the team is the needed catalyst to fund this commercial roll-out. I am excited to be able to work alongside and learn from a proven leader in the sustainable space,” said Fortera CEO and co-founder Dr. Ryan Gilliam.
Fortera has developed a new process to capture cement kiln emissions and convert them into a cementitious product. The technology is a plant upgrade that offers economic savings compared to portland cement, while reducing CO2 emissions by over 60% for every ton of material produced.
“I am thrilled to be joining Fortera and being a part of realizing its revolutionary mission as a market and technology leader in the global effort to lower cement and concrete emissions,” said Scott Healy.
During his distinguished 30-year career in clean energy, Healy has helped build market leading companies in the wind, solar, renewable natural gas, plastic recycling and energy industries. Among his accomplishments, he has financed, acquired or developed more than 8,000 MW of clean energy generation projects.
