In his early life, Carl R. Bozzuto was introduced to the field of environmental sustainability by a friend’s father, who worked as a combustion engineer. After graduating from high school, he attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, receiving a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering and a Master of Science in chemical engineering, both in 1970. After accruing many years in his field, he returned to higher education and earned a Master of Science in management from the Hartford Graduate Center in 1984. Now recognized as a patentee in air pollution and advanced energy systems, Mr. Bozzuto has served as an independent consultant in electric power generation systems design and combustion engineering since 2004.
Earlier in his career, Mr. Bozzuto joined the laboratory of Combustion Engineering, Inc., in 1970 and rose to the rank of chief technologist in 1982, as well as director of marketing in 1984 and general manager of fluid bed systems in 1986. During the course of his career, he worked with the Kreisinger Development Laboratory in Windsor, Connecticut, serving as vice president of technology from 1994 until retiring from full-time work in 2004. Additionally, he has served as a course instructor for EUCI and a judge for the international competition, Carbon XPRIZE.
To remain abreast of developments in his field, Mr. Bozzuto has been a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Additionally, he was elected an honorary member of the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners, for which he has also served as a member of the board of directors. He holds 18 patents in the field and has contributed articles to professional journals. Additionally, he was an editor of the third edition of “The Boiler Operator’s Handbook.” He was also the editor of the award-winning textbook, “Clean Combustion Technologies.”
