Scott Greenway, PhD
Dr. Greenway is a chemical engineer with extensive experience working on the development and deployment of hydrogen storage systems and advanced electrochemical systems. This includes the design and characterization of compressed hydrogen and metal hydride based regenerative fuel cell systems and electrochemical generation of aluminum hydride for hydrogen storage.
He earned his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of South Carolina.
Claudio Corgnale, PhD
- Chief Technology Officer
Dr. Corgnale is a mechanical engineer with experience and expertise in hydrogen energy systems and thermal energy storage systems. He has been involved in the design and assessment of hydrogen production systems, developing process and detailed transport models for thermochemical and electrochemical hydrogen production plants. Dr. Corgnale has also been working on hydrogen storage, thermochemical energy storage systems and hydrogen compression systems. He has been carrying out transport modeling activities, material development research and he has coordinated experimental tests for cryogenic adsorbent systems, high temperature materials and high-pressure hydrogen absorbent systems. He has been the PI of US Department of Energy funded projects in the field of renewable energy, hydrogen compression and catalyst development for thermochemical hydrogen production systems. He earned his PhD in mechanical and industrial engineering from the University Roma Tre (Italy) and is also a visiting research assistant professor at the University of South Carolina.
Aaron Wilber, B.S.
- Chemist, COSS, COSM
Aaron is our resident automation and scale-up chemist. He has been developing a path forward in support of aluminum hydride production for the last 5 years. His experience lies strongly with the lab scale to pilot scale approach in which his strong background in air-sensitive synthesis and process intensification greatly benefit the company. Aaron has been key to developing a process that generates the largest known output for aluminum hydride in the United States, possibly beyond. As lab manager, he maintains communication between employees and management to ensure all projects stay on track to meet required milestones. As a safety officer (COSS/COSSM) and first aid instructor, he plays a crucial role in safety training program development as well as authoring SOPs for any number of projects. Aaron also oversees areas branching into the IT for Greenway Energy and maintains the network and security capabilities. He is adept in many common areas of instrumental analysis, as well as their fabrication, use, data interpretation and maintenance (GC, MS, DTA, XRD, SEM, EDS, FT-IR, UV-Vis, PCT/Sieverts, etc.)
Dr. Theodore Motyka
- Senior Consulting Engineer
Dr. Motyka is responsible for providing technical direction, project management and proposal development for various hydrogen energy projects for GWE. Previously, Dr. Motyka was the Hydrogen Program Manager for the Savannah River National Laboratory. During those past 20 years, he and his team have been actively involved in the development and demonstration of hydrogen as an alternative energy carrier. Dr. Motyka has led several state initiatives for hydrogen energy including an organization that led to South Carolina being the top hydrogen energy states in the southeast. Dr. Motyka also served as the assistant director and metal hydride technical lead for the $40 million, DOE Hydrogen Storage Engineering Center of Excellence. More recently, he has worked on and led several successful winning GWE proposals in energy storage and alternative energy applications.
Cherryl Williams, B.S.
- PMP, COSS, COSM
Cherryl possesses a Project Management Professional (PMP), a Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS), and Certified Occupational Safety Management (COSM) certifications. She has extensive knowledge in managing projects from inception through closure. Together with the project team she reviews SOPs and aids in identifying safety vulnerabilities. As the lead Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) Officer she aids in and verifies that proper administrative and engineering hazard controls have been implemented and are maintained throughout the project life cycle. She participates in all aspects of the safety evaluation procedure including assignment and reviewal of laboratory safety checklist and self-checklist. She is also responsible for implementing, maintaining, and updating the policy and procedures of Greenway Energy LLC.
