We are delighted to welcome Dr. Reetta Kaila as Chief Technology Officer of Coolbrook, starting 28 June 2022

Dr. Reetta Kaila has joined Coolbrook as Chief Technology Officer. In this role, she will be responsible for overseeing the continued development of Coolbrook’s RDR and RDH technologies to maximise their effectiveness for our petrochemical, steel and cement clients as we prepare for commercial application.

She brings over two decades of expertise to the position, including experience testing future fuels for combustion engines and power generation. Prior to joining Coolbrook, Reetta worked as the Director of Sustainable Fuels and Environment at Wärtsilä Energy. Reetta’s depth of knowledge will be an invaluable addition to the Coolbrook team.


““Over the past decade, I have pushed for the decarbonisation of the transport, marine and energy sectors by developing technology for the production and use of renewable fuels. This transition is the final step in decarbonisation when renewable fuels are readily available. Of equal importance is reduction of fuel consumption by increasing efficiency and electrification where possible. I am proud to be joining Coolbrook to help make the electrification of the heavy industrial sectors a reality and contribute my experience of bringing new technology to markets.””
