Education: M.S. Environmental Engineering, University of Cincinnati, 1979
Research on use of biotreatment of industrial wastes, producing methane gas for energy.

Future Enviroassets, LLC is a Project Network Member of Methane to Markets Partnership: Member of Four Subcommittees - Coal; Oil and Gas; Agriculture; and Landfill Gas 

Served as Program Manager at U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory for several major energy and environmental systems projects including: biofuels and biogas; coal and alternative coal technologies such as coal gasification and coal liquefaction; solid and hazardous waste treatment, reuse and disposal.

Developed innovative methodology for multimedia assessments of impacts from combustion sources that were used to develop national policy guidance and regulations.

Founded the National Environmental Technology (NET) Incubator by creating a unique public-private partnership among State, public, private and academic organizations. This was one of only a few technology incubators dedicated to green, clean technologies. Companies in energy, material and process efficiency as well as remediation and recycling were successfully “graduated”.

Developed feasibility analysis on use of biotreatment processes for treatment and energy production for a major agricultural corporation.

Served as chair of the nation’s first Pathogen Equivalency Committee providing technical assistance to proprietors and permitting authorities to ensure pathogen reduction for consideration in beneficial reuse of wastes.

Worked on emissions control with a number of trade groups including: the Petroleum Environmental Research Foundation (12 oil companies);  the American Bakers Association; the Environmental Research and Education Foundation;  the Institute of Clean Air Companies (50 vendors) in the development of a  high-efficiency filtration system; and Edison Electric, Electric Power Research Institute and eight utilities on controlling non-road mobile sources.
