ChampionX Hosts Colorado Governor at Scientific Aviation for Bill Signing

Boulder, Colorado – June 8, 2022 – ChampionX was honored to host Governor Jared Polis and a group of supporters and sponsors as he signed legislation approving the expenditure of over $110 million on efforts to improve Colorado’s air quality.

Senate Bill 22-193 creates a clean air grant program within the Colorado Energy Office to award funds to businesses, local governments, and tribal entities for renewable energy construction, upgrades to the state’s power grid, and projects that help capture methane in the ozone.

“Today, we were honored to host Colorado Governor Jared Polis as he signed an important new emissions-reducing grant program into law,” added Saurabh Nitin, Senior Vice President, Emissions Technologies at ChampionX.

“We believe governments and industry have a unique opportunity to drive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by leveraging the skill and talents found in the energy industry,” said Steve Conley, founder of Scientific Aviation, Inc. “We are proud of our Colorado heritage and the role we play in improving air quality.” Scientific Aviation was acquired by ChampionX in 2021.
