Voltea, the world’s leader in Membrane-Capacitive Deionization (CapDI©), for salt-free and chemical-free water softening and desalination, announced today the addition of Catalina Reyna, Sr. Applications Engineer, effective January 23, 2017. Catalina joins Voltea’s Global Sales team, reporting to Carlos Camero, Sr. VP of Global Sales.
As the number of CapDI system deployments continues to grow, the need for an experienced applications engineer has become evident. In order to help our end use customers and network of system integrators with pretreatment, integration expertise, and broad applications engineering support, we brought in Reyna as her knowledge of these applications is very advantageous.
“I am very grateful for this next phase in my career with Voltea. CapDI is an innovative, and at the same time, well established technology that bridges the existing gap in deionization. The talented team I am joining is welcoming to my knowledge and background, and their high-energy level is contagious. I am very excited and eager to fully embrace every aspect of my new position,” explains Reyna.
Camero mentioned, “Catalina brings a great deal of process engineering knowledge and field experience to Voltea. As we continue to grow our Sales organization due to broad commercial adoption of CapDI technology, our customers demand the process knowledge, technical expertise and project management skills that Catalina brings to our team. We are excited to have Catalina join Voltea to make an immediate contribution to our success.”
Catalina joins the team with two decades of experience in water treatment. Her assignments cover a wide span of the water treatment industry, including wastewater, produced water and ultrapure water, from gravity separations to chemical and biological treatments. She has worked for multinational companies like Veolia and Degremont, and most recently with Akvola Technologies and Shell Oil as a Process Engineer. She has an optimistic outlook about the future of the planet and trusts that technology paired with humanism holds the answer to the environmental challenges we face. She graduated as Biochemical Engineer in Mexico City and holds a Master’s degree in Waste and Water Engineering from the UK.
