Alaskan Returns to Coffman Engineers to Lead Carbon Capture and Hydrogen Transition

A former employee of Coffman Engineers is back with the firm as Vice President of Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage (CCUS) and Hydrogen. Justin Freeman rejoins Coffman to lead a companywide initiative spearheading the CCUS and hydrogen market strategy, the development of internal capabilities, and managing CCUS and hydrogen projects across the country.

“Electrification and renewables are a great start to the Energy Transition,” Freeman explains, “but in order for the whole economy to decarbonize, we will need to deploy CCUS and hydrogen in hard-to-abate market sectors to achieve Net Zero.”

Freeman is a resident of Alaska with a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder. His background includes successfully developing and managing a CCUS program for a multinational corporation, managing international giga projects, and leading business units through process transformations.

“The world appropriately focuses on preserving the environment for future generations and reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a key component. With Justin’s knowledge, guidance, and our history of industry experience and technical resources, we are well-positioned to serve clients committed to the same pursuit,” says Dave Ruff, Coffman’s CEO and board chair.

Coffman can assist clients with their carbon goals, and the company’s CCUS and hydrogen services are also complemented by capabilities in renewable power, battery storage, and other alternative energy technologies.
