In addition, they would involve administering a small office growing to about six people; keeping financial records; maintaining a tight and efficient electronic and paper filing system.

EXPERIENCE  The candidate should have a reasonable network of connections in the Ile de France area, as well as in greater France and in Europe.  They should have previously run a small office, and had some experience of writing grant or loan applications.

The Project

The nonprofit US Litus Foundation was formed five years ago to help slow global warming and help creatures adapt to it.  Focus is on supporting new technologies to quickly improve energy efficiency and reduce global CO2 emissions.       
 
We are now working in France and England, where an application for sister Foundation is being assessed by the Charity Commissioners for England.  There are already for-profit companies, Litus Industrial Ltd (England) and Litus Industriel SAS (France), to be wholly owned by the Foundation.

As a first project, we are developing extreme-efficiency uncooled engines, for all uses and fuels.  They do not yet exist; people are not aware that they are possible; apparently only Litus is developing them.  Up to 60 % of man-made CO2 is said to come from all internal combustion (IC) engines.  For over 140 years, every time a piston engine has run, 30% to 50% of fuel energy has been dissipated through water- or air-based cooling systems and general radiation.  This waste should not continue.

Once the first long-life uncooled engines run successfully, the world will switch from cooled to uncooled engines, which will cut man-made CO2 by up to 35% within fifteen years.  It is probably the single biggest and quickest route to reaching the COP21 objective of limiting global temperature rise to a maximum of between 2.0 and 1.5 degrees C.
