Regional Hubs Manager, Midwest
Ian Champ is the Midwest Hubs Manager. In that capacity, he leads CATF’s work in the U.S.’s Midwest region to facilitate community, state, and regional level communication and education efforts, public policy, and technology and business innovation focused on carbon capture, hydrogen, and ammonia production for hard to decarbonize end-uses as part of the wider Zero-Carbon Fuels and Carbon Capture teams. The goals of catalyzing low-emission hydrogen production and its end-use as well as expansion of carbon capture technologies throughout the region guide this work.

His prior professional background is in energy efficiency and renewable energy to reduce client emissions portfolios as well as soliciting and incorporating community feedback for client program development and implementation plans.
