Energy Recovery, a U.S. manufacturer of pressure exchangers, has appointed David Moon as its President and CEO.
According to a statement from the company, Moon, who had served as the company’s interim President and CEO since October 2023, brings more than 25 years of leadership experience in commercial and industrial technology development, manufacturing and marketing to the role, including from within the commercial refrigeration sector.
Following decades of producing pressure exchanger technology for the desalination industry, Energy Recovery expanded into transcritical CO2 (R744) refrigeration about three years ago with its PX G1300 device. Since then, the manufacturer has taken several steps to expand its presence in the sector.
In March 2023, for example, Energy Recovery announced that its PX G1300 energy recovery device would be a “featured component” of Epta Group’s next-generation commercial CO2 refrigeration technology, the XTE (Extra Transcritical Efficiency).
“David is the right leader to drive our long-term growth,” said Pamela Tondreau, the Chair of Energy Recovery’s Board of Directors. “The Board conducted a comprehensive search and has unanimously agreed David has the experience and skills the company needs as we focus on commercializing new applications of our PX technology platform. We have been particularly impressed with his broad executive experience in commercial and industrial technologies, including CO2 refrigeration and its derivatives.”
Prior to joining Energy Recovery, Moon served as President of CO2-specialist Carrier Commercial Refrigeration, which had been a division of Carrier Global Corporation before it was sold to Chinese manufacture Haier in December 2023. Moon has also previously worked as Director of CoolSys and President and COO of Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration.

“I want to thank the Board for their vote of confidence as well as Robert Mao and the entire Energy Recovery team for building a strong company that is well-positioned for continued growth,” said Moon. “I have tremendous confidence in this company’s unique ability to engineer reliable and trusted technology. I look forward to engaging with our many stakeholders in the coming months as we build on our position as a leading technology innovator, delivering value to customers and financial results for shareholders.”
