Pierre Jungels (PhD '73)

After Caltech, I worked more than 40 years in the international Oil and gas business mostly in Exploration and production of which more than 25 years at main Board of Directors level.
I was a Director of Baker Hughes Inc. until July this year where BHI merged with GE Oil and Gas.
I am Chairman of Velocys Plc. a technology business merging the micro channels reactor technology of Battle with hyper active catalysts from Oxford University.
This allows small scale GTL ( Fischer Tropch ) to be economical and allows small scale renewable production of Jet Fuels and Diesel from non recyclable waste or woody by products.
