Southampton-based SEaB Energy, a WEConnect International certified women-owned business and a pioneering developer of patented technology that turns waste into energy, has announced the addition of Philip Ward, to its advisory board. Philip’s previous experience as a director in the Department of the Environment saw him directly involved with the Energy Savings Trust and the establishment of the Carbon Trust, and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP).
After leaving his role at the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, Philip served as a director of WRAP, spearheading the introduction of separate food waste collections at local authority level and leading its packaging waste prevention programme for the retail sector.
Announcing the news at its manufacturing facility, Sandra Sassow, CEO of SEaB Energy, said:
"Philip brings a unique industry insight and impetus that will take SEaB Energy forward at a crucial point in our growth as we start to develop a number of key international markets. Philip brings a wealth of knowledge gained from his years shaping resource policy that will further help us transition centralised waste and energy infrastructure to a more localised approach."
Philip Ward commented:
"I am delighted to be joining the advisory board at one of the UK’s brightest cleantech companies as it now begins to accelerate sales of its unique waste to energy technology. SEaB Energy’s systems bring immediate financial and environmental benefits to a wide range of organic waste producers, including corporates, hospitality businesses, food and drink producers and even remote communities, all of whom are demanding an effective source of green energy."
