With over 10 years of experience in the chemicals and fuels sector, coupled with expertise in strategy execution, senior management and market analysis, Andrew Waters (above) will play a crucial role in leading the commercial operations and growth of OXCCU.

Prior to joining OXCCU, Andrew Waters had diverse experiences in the chemical, biochemical and oil and gas industries. He was employed at Johnson Matthey for 10 years in a variety of technical and commercial leadership roles, including managing a portfolio of licensed technologies and catalysts. He also worked for the UK Government as the Head of Chemicals for the Department for Business and Trade (previously DIT) promoting investment into the UK chemicals sector and helping UK chemical companies to export.

Andrew Waters holds an MEng in Chemical Engineering from The University of Bath and he is a chartered member of the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). His combined specialised knowledge in chemistry and commercial expertise makes him a valuable asset to support OXCCU’s mission to deliver a sustainable future for fuels, chemicals, and plastics.

As the Head of Commercial, Andrew Waters will lead on the commercialisation of OXCCU’s novel catalysts and reactor designs. His key responsibilities will include building OXCCU’s customer pipeline and strengthening the partnerships we need to scale. Andrew Waters will consistently embody OXCCU's company values and play a vital role in communicating the company's vision - to enable future generations the continued use of hydrocarbons but without their climate impact.

OXCCU Co-Founder and CEO, Andrew Symes, said: "We're delighted to welcome Andrew Waters into our growing team. Andrew Waters will be key to turning our novel catalysts and processes into licensable technology packages.”

OXCCU, a spin-out company from the University of Oxford, is developing novel catalysts and reactor designs to convert carbon dioxide and hydrogen into hydrocarbons with high conversion and selectivity for use as fuels, chemicals and plastics. It is known for its unique one-step process to turn CO2 directly into SAF, which is distinctive to other e-fuels companies focused on the two-step approach. The company is headquartered in the UK, with operations at Begbroke Science Park, Oxford and London Oxford Airport.
