MBA Featured Speaker Series presents Don McCormick Discussing Brattleboro Waste-to-Energy Project

Summary: 

Friday, December 3, 5:00pm

 
Building Deeply Sustainable Food and Energy Systems Through Integration
- Don McCormick, president of Carbon Harvest Energy.
 
The president of Carbon Harvest Energy will discuss his company's landfill gas-to-energy project in Brattleboro as a practical model of sustainable and responsible resource use. The central principle of this project is to replace a linear model of resource extraction => consumption => waste with a circular model based on nature, where waste/outputs are recovered to become new inputs for further processes--until no waste remains. McCormick has over 20 years of entrepreneurship, management and engineering expertise. Prior to founding Carbon Harvest Energy, he designed Laughing Duck Farm, a sustainable aquaponics business that produces year-round food (microgreens and Tilapia) in a cold climate, as well as a greenhouse that uses all renewable energy inputs and eliminates waste through a closed-loop water system.
