The expert witness in biodiesel-related litigation is a very specialized role with a select group of professionals. As the term “bioeconomy” encompasses many areas of expertise – bioenergy, biofuels, renewable chemicals, biotechnologies, feedstocks, and more – the initial challenge of counsel is finding the right expert(s) for the matter involved. For example, an engineering question requires a very different skill set than a chemical question, and both are different from the expertise needed to opine about economic or damage matters. Thus, counsel should determine precisely what they need as early as possible and ensure that the professionals considered have sufficient background, education, and experience in the precise technical or scientific question.
At Lee Enterprises Consulting, we offer hundreds of services in virtually every area of the bioeconomy. For example, our Bioenergy Section handles ethanol, biodiesel, cellulosic ethanol, sustainable aviation and renewable jet fuels, marine biofuels, biomass power, renewable natural gas (RNG), biogas and other landfill gases, renewable diesel, Fischer Tropsch Diesel, syngas, gas-to-liquids (GTL), Combined Heat & Power (CHP), biobutanol/isobutanol, bio coal, biochar & activated carbons, torrefied biomass, pyrolysis oil, DME, fuel additives, wood pellets, and more. Although only a small portion of what these experts do, most are available to serve as expert witnesses. As with any good expert witness, our specialists always provide impartial and unbiased results. Each of these experts has undergone in-house training as to their role in litigation.
