Megan O'Connor      

Co-founder and CEO of Nth Cycle

Megan O’Connor is an environmental engineer and chemist who has 6 years experience in developing carbon nanotube membrane separation technologies, and the Co-founder and CEO of Nth Cycle.

Megan O'Connor has devised a novel, more environmentally friendly method of recycling valuable metals from discarded batteries and electronics, using carbon nanotube filters the size of a water bottle to extract cobalt and lithium. She believes nanotube filters will make it cheaper for electronics makers to buy recycled metals than newly mined, with one-tenth the energy input.

She received her Ph.D. from Duke University, and her undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Union College (Schenectady NY).
