Welcome To The JBI Inc. HUB On AGORACOM
Converting Waste Plastic to Ultra-Clean, Ultra-Low Sulphur Fuel
President & CEO
As the founding CEO and President of JBI, Inc. Mr. Bordynuik is responsible for driving corporate strategy, business development and process design.
Bordynuik's passion for data recovery began 18 years ago, when he first designed custom hardware to recover data from old DEC Tapes and hard disk platters. He went on to become the Director of Research & Development for the Ontario Provincial Legislature for ten years. Bordynuik next embarked on the pursuit of the "Holy Grail" of all software, seeking a vital piece of software that had been lost by the founders of the world's largest software company. He was able to successfully recover this software for its creators. Bordynuik also fully restored their 1975 PDP10 – a computer that consisted of a large severely damaged memory sub-system – in less than a month. In the process of this restoration project, he designed a complete replacement memory subsystem for the PDP10.
Ready to embark on his own venture, Bordynuik returned home to Niagara Falls, Ontario and incorporated JBI, Inc. in 2006. He built the company organically, through strong client relationships and an impeccable reputation, while developing sophisticated magnetic storage devices to recover legacy data. His clients have included MIT, the U.S. Army, NASA, Fortune 500 company founders, professors from academic institutions worldwide as well as public and private companies.
Mr. Bordynuik also worked at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory as a former collaborative researcher and then as a consultant in their Math and Computation Group. In his role as a consultant, he developed highly sophisticated technology to read thousands of computers tapes for MIT.
Bordynuik's expertise lies in being able to create products and processes that optimize and incorporate as much intelligence as possible, using applications that are as inexpensive as possible. His designs are elegant, robust and efficient, and are not limited to data recovery. Over many years, Bordynuik designed a custom CPU core that is used in mission critical applications. In 2005, Bordynuik was granted a broad U.S. patent (7,115,872) for a dirty bomb detector.
Bordynuik’s activism and drive to clean-up environment was inspired from his employment in the Ontario Legislature where he witnessed first-hand the negative ecological impact of the movement toward plastic over glass. He became proactive about preserving his local environment, and subsequently grounded his company’s mission in behaving ecologically and implementing green practices that reduce environmental impact. Mr. Bordynuik's latest innovation, Plastic2Oil, is a proprietary process for turning waste plastic into ultra-clean, low-sulphur fuel.
