Dan joined Calix in July 2014, primarily to assist with developing the LEILAC proposal under the European Union’s H2020 programme. LEILAC is a 5-year major project to develop and demonstrate a new technology for carbon capture in the cement and lime industry. LEILAC will deliver a step-change in the efficiency of capturing CO2emissions. See www.project-leilac.eu for more information and follow it on twitter under ‘ProjectLEILAC’.
Dan has a MA in history from St Andrews in the UK, and worked in the electricity industry. Keen to contribute to global decarbonisation efforts he joined the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI) as a regional representative for Europe based in France. During that time he ran the European CCS Demonstration Project Network, which contained 7 large scale projects.
Dan is currently the coordinator of the LEILAC project, which started in January 2016 and is being led by Calix. He is greatly enjoying working with the dedicated and enthusiastic staff within Calix and project partners (which include leading industrial, engineering, R&D and consulting organisations).
Dan and his wife, Anne-Sophie, have a very bubbly and adored child, Luc – whose future is proving to be an extra motivation for working on Calix’s market-leading innovations for environmental and social benefit.
