I'm noticing a small trend of ex-CEOs of renewable chemical firms jumping to head start-up companies that are using natural gas for feedstock.
One recent one that I just came across is Ed Dineen, former CEO of LS9, who will now will head Siluria, a company that develops technology and processes for converting natural gas to chemicals and fuel, according to this article from San Francisco Business Times.
The blog first reported about Siluria in October 2010 when I interviewed ex-CEO (and now reportedly delegated as president) Alex Tkachenko. Siluria was a Silicon Valley-based start up company that begun in 2008 as a spin-off from Cambrios Technologies co-founded by MIT bioengineer Angela Belcher.
