A Houston-based developer of green technology projects is expanding its management team by partnering with an affiliate of C2 Industrial Group.

Global Clean Energy's joint venture aims to “build, develop and manage sustainable clean energy projects in various forms while reducing negative carbon emissions or footprints” according to a news release.

James Wiseman has been named as chief legal officer and Jacob Sacks has been named as CFO. They join the current management team of George Azimov, president, and Chris Boll, chief revenue officer and director. Together, the goal is to engage professionals from C2 Industrial Group to present and acquire business opportunities that align with the goals and values of Global Clean Energy.

“GCEI's mission and purpose could not be more critical in today's trying times,“ Wiseman says in a news release. “We must build sustainable businesses and industries. We must reduce the carbon footprint of business and industry. We must invest in green supply chains and emerging technologies. We need to think and act with clarity of purpose. That's what we intend to do as we look to acquire and build projects for GCEI that fulfill that mission.”

Wiseman recently served as principal and chief legal officer of C2 Industrial based in Joshua, Texas. He has over 25 years of experience buying, developing and operating real estate in New York and Texas with Cayuga Capital Management LLC. Sacks recently served as principal and CFO of C2 Industrial.

“We are pleased to be working with GCEI to combine and bring scale to companies that both have strong growth prospects and provide material benefits to the environment through their operations, in a prudent and financially responsible manner,” Sacks adds in the release.

SLB announced its plans to combine its carbon capture business with Norway company, Aker Carbon Capture.

Upon completion of the transaction, which is expected to close by the end of the second quarter of this year, SLB will own 80 percent of the combined business and ACC will own 20 percent.

According to a SLB news release, the combined technology portfolios will accelerate the introduction of promising early-stage decarbonization technology.

“For CCUS to have the expected impact on supporting global net-zero ambitions, it will need to scale up 100-200 times in less than three decades,” Olivier Le Peuch, CEO of SLB, says in the release. “Crucial to this scale-up is the ability to lower capture costs, which often represent as much as 50-70% of the total spend of a CCUS project.

The International Energy Agency estimates that over one gigaton of CO2 every year year will need to be captured by 2030 — a figure that scales up to over six gigatons by 2050.

"We are excited to create this business with ACC to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture technologies that will shift the economics of carbon capture across high-emitting industrial sectors,” Le Peuch continues.

SLB is slated to pay NOK 4.12 billion — around $379.4 million — to own 80 percent of Aker Carbon Capture Holding AS, which owns ACC, per the news release, and SLB may also pay up to NOK 1.36 billion over the next three years, depending on business performance.
