  • Neumann: plucks former Utilities manager from retirement.
In a news release issued today, Neumann Systems Group announced the hiring of George Luke as a vice president for business operations.

NSG is the developer and owner of a pollution control device being installed on Colorado Springs Utilities' downtown Drake coal-fired power plant. The equipment is designed to remove sulfur dioxide, although Neumann is working on equipment that also would remove carbon dioxide.

The $130 million project has drawn skepticism from a few City Council members for several years.

Luke, who served as electric generation manager with Utilities, won't be directly involved in the NSG installation, due for completion in the next year or two.

Rather, says NSG owner Dave Neumann in an interview, he'll focus on working with oil and gas producers in using CO2, a byproduct of coal-fired power plants, in enhancing oil recovery. Luke has a degree in chemical engineering, Neumann notes.

Luke started with NSG late last month.
