Aiden Farhangi

Aiden Farhangi.

Director, Protech

Aiden has successfully created a start up which provides Storage Tank Cleaning in a unique way. It converts 'Waste into Wealth' globally by turning crude oil sludge into on-spec crude oil, saving the end user on maintenance costs as well as making them a genuine profit in most cases (the cost of clean is lower than the recovered value of the hydrocarbons), as well as lowering HSE risk by being No Man Entry. Furthermore, no heat energy is required so this is a huge step towards decarbonisation. It's early days for this business, but Aiden has successfully brought this technology to market and built a loyal team around him. Protech is now partnered with some key players in the USA, Malaysia, UK and Oman. Watch this space!
