FINALIST 2019

Kurt Sorschak is President and CEO of Xebec Adsorption Inc., a company founded in 1967 that designs, engineers, manufactures, sells and maintains biogas purification systems.

Sorschak actively contributed to the business’s evolution, from a local manufacturer specializing in gas and compressed air drying to a gas purification business, active and recognized all over the world.

For me, success is moving towards the goal you set originally.

In 2015, Xebec had dozens of facilities operating worldwide, with an ever-increasing number of new projects and contracts.

Since Xebec was founded, Sorschak’s vision has been to focus on clean energy, making Xebec a world-renowned company.

By 2015, the company had dozens of installations around the world, but the desire to reduce the carbon footprint was not yet fully understood.

A visionary at the service of the environment

Despite experiencing financial difficulties in 2008 and almost bankrupt in 2011-2012, Sorschak has persevered, believing that renewable energy was the energy of the future. He undertook a major restructuring to keep Xebec afloat.

2016 marked a real turning point for the company. Kurt Sorschak has put together a passionate team to develop low-cost, carbon-neutral solutions, increasing Xebec’s sales from $9.6 million to nearly $25 million in 2018.
