BS Business Administration
Researched biofuels and alternative forms of transportation.
During Fall 2009, completed a class called Introduction to Sustainability Technologies at CPCC and achieved a high A (actual points earned 100.16%). My semester presentation project was an overview of biofuels including, ethanol, cellulosic ethanol, and biodiesel. Classmates were introduced to concepts of first and second generation feedstocks such as corn, forestry waste, soybean oil, and switchgrass, and advanced feedstocks such as algae. Other concepts covered were greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), net energy output, energy density, and cold flow properties of biofuels as compared with petroleum products.
Researched a biofuels company on a volunteer basis for an Eco Industrial Park Project. This involved inquiry calls to the National Biodiesel Board, Petroleum Marketers Association, EPA, and ASTM International (the organization that tests and sets international standards for chemicals, fuels and materials before they can enter the marketplace), among others.
Toured a biodiesel plant in Augusta, GA and later attended a presentation for this company’s recent joint venture with an algae company which uses a cutting edge technology for generating algae oil for biodiesel and solids for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets. Volunteered in May 2011 to organize a presentation of their joint venture in Charlotte, NC.
What opportunities or resources are you seeking?
Would enjoy participating on any committee or community effort related to an EV charging infrastructure or advanced biofuels developments in the WNC region.
