Avsalt appoints Thomas Bengtsson as new Chairman of the Board


Avsalt welcomes Thomas Bengtsson to the Board of Directors and appoints him new Chairman of the Board. Thomas is a cleantech entrepreneur and investor with broad experience of governing growth companies, following positions at both investment-fund level, for Industrifonden, and company level as CoB at Nasdaq First North listed companies. He succeeds co-founder Mohamad Takwa, who has held the position since 2019.


“Access to clean water is a continuous concern, while desalination requires enormous amounts of energy that is expensive and environmentally consuming. Avsalt has an exciting technology to clean water cost- and energy-efficiently. I am thrilled to become part of the Board of Directors and contribute to Avsalt’s plans forward.” says Thomas Bengtsson. 


Thomas Bengtsson also has experience from supporting growth companies in a CFO position and working for the European Commissions in Brussels. On June 16, he joined Avsalt and the company’s mission to commercialize Avsalts’s novel water desalination technology. 


“I’m very happy about what Avsalt has achieved during the last three years and thankful for the contribution from everyone I have had the pleasure of working with. As Avsalt is entering an exciting industrialization stage, another type of skillset within venture growth will be required, and I am confident Thomas is the right person to lead us on this part of the journey.” says Mohamad Takwa, co-founder and board member.
