Kevin DeWhitt

Founder, PDO Technologies, Inc.
Founder, Chief Technology Officer, Agilyx
Kevin DeWhitt founded the Cleantech company Agilyx, (originally, Plas2Fuel), in March, 2004.  As the founder and a key member of the executive team, he helped the company raise more than $100 million from angel investors, venture capitalists and strategic partners.  Mr. DeWhitt led the technical development efforts in his role as Chief Technology Officer, and these efforts resulted in commercialization of the technology in 2012 at three project locations in the USA.  In addition, the company has won several industry awards for its novel waste conversion process approach, and Mr. DeWhitt has been granted eight patents related to the technology, with five additional national and international patents pending.  Mr. DeWhitt left Agilyx in July, 2014 to begin a new venture, PDO technologies, which focuses on global development & deployment of waste conversion technologies.  His belief is that commercialization of these technologies will lead to localized environmental restoration, job creation and energy production.

Prior to founding Agilyx & PDO Technologies, Mr. DeWhitt worked for 20 years in the analytical chemistry sector for a number of federal and independent laboratories, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Mr. DeWhitt holds two Bachelor of Science degrees (Chemistry, Physics) from Oregon State University, and spent an additional year studying Physics at the University of Stuttgart in Germany.
