Session Description

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-CeR6jL25w

Greg will relate the good, the bad, the ugly and the very, very ugly experiences of making biochar and power at California’s largest two “small scale” gasification plants. HE will talk about future developments as well as the changing economic interrelation between biochar, power and heat.

Olivier Lepez will share the story of Biogreen's continuous pyrolysis process that produces biochar from various feedstocks - examples of heat and mass balance, syngas composition and valorization, characterisation of a typical biochar produced (physical, chemical, toxicology) and its performance on water retention.

Bio and Photo

Gregory Stangl has been working in the energy and environment field since early 1999 when he led the buyout and subsequent turnaround of Energy Investors, a firm dedicated to improving air quality in Europe by replacing coal furnaces and improving facility energy efficiency. Developments in Europe led the business into to the biomass gasification and biochar arena and in 2007 Phoenix Energy was spun out to focus exclusively on that market in the US. Prior to his work in the energy and environment field, Mr. Stangl worked for several years as a venture capitalist based in Paris and Warsaw and for the UN Development Program in Central Europe. During his venture capital career Mr. Stangl served on the boards of several European companies. Mr. Stangl holds an M.B.A and a Masters’ of International Affairs, both from Columbia University.

After a Bs in Chemistry, a Doctorate in Process Engineering (UTC, France) and a PhD in Chemical Engineering (Universite laval, Qc, Canada), Olivier Lepez (52) founded ETIA in 1989, a company involves in innovative solutions for equipments and processes especially in food technologies (Safesteril) and continuous thermochemical conversion of biomass with Biogreen technology (www.biogreen-energy.com). With more than 10 years industrial experience and several equipment installed all over the world, Biogreen is a proven technology for biochar production. In 2012, Olivier founded VT GREEN, a company involves in R&D and industrial production of biochar for soil amendment, fertilizer and water retention applications.

Leonard Roberts has been the CEO of Roberts Brothers Lumber Company in Ashfield, MA since 1982.
