NORTH KINGSTOWN – Control-valve manufacturer Clarke Valve presented a talk at the Innovation Agora at CERAWeek in Houston in March.

The event is a forum in which to share ideas on energy innovation and emerging technologies.

Kyle Daniels, president and CEO of Clarke Valve, delivered a presentation on the performance of the company’s Shutter Valve and the partnership between Clarke and OGCI Climate Investments. The Shutter Valve can reduce fugitive methane emissions by 95% when compared to other globe valves, according to a news release.

London-based OGCI Climate Investments is a venture fund focused on economically viable, market-ready technologies. It led a $5.5 million round in venture capital to Clarke Valve in fall 2018.
