Two leaders from Advanced Emissions Solutions Inc.’s executive team, Sharon Sjostrom, Chief Product Officer, and Christine Amrhein, General Counsel and Secretary, were recognised by the Denver Business Journal in its ‘2016 Top Women in Energy’ awards.

Sjostrom and Amrhein were among 40 regional energy leaders recognised as key influencers in the metro Denver energy sector.

“We are very proud of Sharon and Chris’ contributions to ADES and ADA [its wholly owned subsidiary, ADA-ES, Inc.] and to the industry, and now for this recognition as two of the ‘Top Women in Energy.’ Sharon’s passion for making low-cost, environmentally-conscious energy available to consumers has been a guiding force throughout her 25-plus year career with ADES. Most impressive is her technical expertise in mercury emissions control systems, which have been and are currently being implemented in the majority of coal-fired power plants across the country,” said Heath Sampson, President and CEO, ADES.

Sjostrom is an internationally-recognised expert in advanced mercury control solutions, leveraging extensive engineering training and experience to help US power plants responsibly deliver the electricity that powers the country. Sjostrom has published more than 50 technical papers, is an inventor on 16 patents, has served on the Coal Utilization Research Council and National Coal Council, and is a Board member for the Institute of Clear Air Companies.

“We’ve also been privileged to have Chris providing legal and strategic guidance to our team these past five years. Her diverse experience and commitment has been particularly important as the coal industry confronts mounting economic challenges and evolving environmental regulations. Her work has been instrumental in allowing us to continue to deliver cleaner energy solutions,” added Sampson.

Amrhein has extensive multi-industry, domestic and international, business, strategic and legal experience and a commitment to cost-effective, sustainable sources of energy that brought her to ADES in 2011. Since then she has been a strategic partner to the board of directors and executive management team in providing legal support for business operations, complex transactions and corporate governance that help enable ADES to deliver its emissions control solutions to customers nationwide.
