Venture capitalism has been the darling of the business community for a long time. It’s generally presented as a logical extension of other business development models. And there’s usually a romantic overlay of risky projects, risky financing and rewards for taking risk.
There may be such a venture in a parallel universe, but here on planet Earth, the reality usually turns out differently. NCAC’s June Luncheon will explore that reality of just how difficult finding a solution to a significant environmental problem might be. And this solution relates to nothing less than fouling Chesapeake Bay by run-off from chicken farms on the DELMARVA. The run-off comes from chicken waste – called “litter” in publications suitable for family reading.
CleanBay Renewables (CBR) was established in 2013 to find alternative uses for chicken litter. And there are lots of them, including jet fuel, facial creams and electricity. There are lots of problems too.
The speaker, Jason Levine, is Chief Business Development Officer of CleanBay Renewables. Jason has lived through all of these problems and is ready to break ground on CBR’s first digester, located near Princess Anne, Maryland.
