Driven by Innovation
In 2013, Green Theme Technologies Inc. began in the kitchen of Dr. Gary Selwyn with him mixing and applying various chemistries on his ironing board. His novel concept embedded GTT’s progressive culture that better technology also promotes the long-term health of the planet.
Dr. Gary Selwyn’s 30+ year career and higher education in chemistry equipped him to conceive of the EMPEL™ technology platform. He completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of California Berkeley, solved problems for IBM globally for 12 years and authored several groundbreaking patents in atmospheric plasma technology when he was a principal investigator at Los Alamos National Labs. His unique background, his love of the outdoors and his creative talent propelled him to conceive of a revolutionary way to finish textiles without the use of water or hazardous chemicals.
