SG ceo joins Jazz FM’s Jazz Shapers

Standard Gas chief executive, David Whitmarsh, has become the latest “Jazz Shaper” on Jazz FM. Broadcast every Saturday, “Jazz Shapers” presenter Elliot Moss interviews people in business “who, like the shapers of jazz, soul, and blues, have defied convention, broken the mould and gone on to achieve great success.” 

Asked about his path from university to Standard Gas, David recounted how, after graduation, and qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor, he built a career in property investment and development, founding and managing two successful business. Then, in 2013, and seeing the potential for producing carbon negative energy from waste feedstocks, David became an investor in Standard Gas and, soon after, joined the management team.

Since 2016, he’s led the company’s successful growth and overseen the Standard Gas group’s restructuring. Driving the business forward, David underlines the value of teamwork, agility, and adaptability in tenacious pursuit of clear strategic goals.

Renewable, carbon-negative electricity, biogas, transport fuels, green hydrogen, chemical feedstock, carbon-removing biochar, transformational waste management and…and…and
Our SG100 technology produces affordable, clean, carbon-negative energy, while capturing and removing carbon, and transforming waste management for the Circular Economy.
Our carbon removing technology has wide-scale commercial, transportation and industrial applications across value chains.

Carbon Negative Energy: Each year, a single SG100 plant can generate up to 40,000 MW hours of carbon-negative power, enough for around 10,000 homes, offices or commercial properties, as well as for the transportation sector and wider industry.

Carbon Reduction: It will remove up to 16,000 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of 5,000 cars. With electrolysis, a plant processing biogenic waste will generate over 650 tonnes of green hydrogen. And the SG100 closes the waste management loop, offering a better low carbon alternative to landfill and incineration.

Carbon Capture: TheSG100 technology also generates ‘biochar’ and ‘carbon char’, a black, granular, dust-like co- product that can be sequestered in valuable agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.


Our Mission is to significantly contribute in mitigating and reversing climate change’s negative environmental, social and economic impacts.
