Ryan Melsert Reflects on His First Week as CEO

In September 2021, Ryan Melsert was appointed as the CEO. Ryan’s appointment was part of a leadership transition to prioritize the company’s technology development and commercialization efforts and to position the company for long-term growth.

2022 Shareholder Letter

In January, 2022, Ryan Melsert issued his first shareholder letter as CEO. The letter lays out his initial direction for the company, and highlights our unique position as a company based in innovation and disruption.

“While there are many companies that construct and operate multiple large commercial facilities with mature processing train flowsheets, it is in the design, development, and optimization of innovative and unconventional processes where ABTC focuses. We as a team have the rare combination of skill sets and experiences to balance physics-based first-principles analytical modeling to define the workspace, with physical bench chemistry and fabrication of integrated systems to validate the operations, and economic and lifecycle impact modeling to assess the competitiveness of the technologies within the market.”

“I still wake up each morning humbled by the confidence you have placed in me, awestruck by the opportunity at our fingertips, and steadfast to help drive this company to its goals.”
