December 26, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Advanced Energy Research Corp. (AER, St. Petersburg, FL) announced the appointment of Jack Durham as CTO. Durham developed TrueFuel for AER, which is an alternative fuel similar to synthetic gas. Durham previously worked with the US Environmental Protection Agency for 27 years as a senior research chemist and science program manager.

"Under my technological leadership, we expect to make TrueFuel the leading source of alternative energy,” Durham said. “TrueFuel has a high potential to displace other fuel technologies, including solar cells, as the fuel of choice for the world's new wave of independent, small energy districts. We believe that TrueFuel is the first bridge to a local, renewable, hydrogen-energy economy. TrueFuel will replace fossil fuels by operating almost seamlessly with the world's existing inventory of engines and industrial heating devices.”
