CALGARY, Oct. 25, 2017 /CNW/ - CMC Research Institutes (CMCRI) is pleased to welcome new President and CEO Sandra Odendahl to its leadership team as it enters a new phase in the organization's development. With over 20 years of experience in environmental science, engineering, and finance, Sandra will lead the next chapter of innovation at CMCRI, in support of dramatically reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions.
"I am thrilled to join CMCRI at a pivotal time in our history as an organization," says the new CEO. "With the completion of two new technology testing and scale-up facilities in Western Canada, CMCRI has a tremendous opportunity to leverage our knowledge and expertise in new ways to accelerate the reduction of industrial carbon emissions."
In Canada, over 40% of greenhouse gas emissions are from the industrial sector. Technological innovations are critical to Canada's ability to reduce its carbon footprint, while allowing the economy to grow and prosper. CMC Research Institutes works with large companies, small startups, government and academics from Canada and around the world to develop and scale up solutions to the industrial emissions challenge, such as carbon capture, utilization and storage – a suite of technologies that are essential to global efforts to reduce GHGs, and present export and technology transfer opportunities for Canada as well as domestic benefits.
Dan Zilnik, Chair of CMCRI's Board, says, "We are excited to welcome Sandra to the team! CMCRI is making significant contributions to the way we reduce industrial GHG emissions, in Canada and internationally. I am confident that Sandra's leadership will bring energy and momentum to our work. The entire Board is excited to have her join the team."
