He received his first issued utility patent at the age of 16 and published his first peer-reviewed journal article in the American Chemical Society journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters at the age of 17. Ethan develops novel technologies to transform underutilized or presently discarded material and energy streams into valuable chemical feedstocks or products. He has invented and is developing technologies in CO2 Capture, CO2 Conversion, Electricity Storage, Renewable Energy, Resource Recovery, and Energy Efficiency.
Ethan founded Innovator Energy to commercialize and deploy his patented CO2 capture technology, CO2 Evolution® and patented ammonia abatement cycle, RecovAm™. CO2 Evolution® is the first and only CO2 capture technology powered by power plant and industry condenser water. RecovAm™ requires 95% less energy than the best present ammonia abatement cycle technologies.
