SCHENECTADY, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Auterra Inc., a clean energy company that is actively developing catalyst and process technology for the upgrading of heavy and sour crude oil and oil distillates, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Humberto Vainieri to its Board of Directors.
"We are honored to have Humberto join our board, and provide his assistance as we advance the development and commercialization of Auterra's FlexDS desulfurization and upgrading process," said Eric Burnett, CEO and Board Chair of Auterra, Inc.
