C-Capture appoints former CEO of Centrica Business as Chairman

May 10 2021

C-Capture, developers of efficient chemical processes for capturing carbon dioxide from industrial sources, have appointed Mark Hanafin as their new Chair of the Board.

Mark brings an exceptional breadth and depth of experience in the power, energy and utility sector to the board, obtained both in the UK and internationally. His early career with General Electric Company in the power sector led to a distinguished 22-year career with Shell, culminating in his role as CEO of Shell Energy North America.

The last decade brought Mark back to the UK, where his role as CEO of Centrica Business required high level interactions with the markets, supply chain and UK government departments, directly relevant to C-Capture’s growth plans. He also serves as Chairman on the board of Spirit Energy.

“I am convinced of the necessity of carbon capture and storage in the energy transition, and believe that C-Capture’s low energy process will be transformational in lowering the costs and accelerating the global adoption of this technology,” said Mark.

Ben Murphy, Director representing IP Group plc, C-Capture’s founding investor said, “I welcome Mark to the Board, his perspective and experience will be instrumental in the next critical stage of leading our innovative technology to market.”
