Greenhouse gas experts see the potentially disastrous results of global warming, and assist with evaluation and the many things underway to curb global warming. By definition, a “greenhouse gas” is any gas that contributes to the “greenhouse effect”, a natural process that warms the Earth’s surface by allowing the absorbed energy to warm the atmosphere and the surface of the Earth, and allow maintaining of temperatures which allow life on Earth to exist. Our plant operates just like a regular greenhouse, staying warm inside even during the winter as daytime sunlight is trapped in by the glass walls and providing warmth on colder nights. Some GHGs, like water vapor, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, are naturally present in the atmosphere, and are good. But others are from synthetic chemicals that are emitted when we burn fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), agriculture or in land clearing. These gases are not good as they increase the concentrations of greenhouse gases and contributing to an unhealthy warming of the Earth known as global warming.
Because land surfaces heat faster than ocean surfaces, we see deserts expanding and more prevalent heat waves and wild fires. The rise in surface temperature is greatest in the Arctic and far north, where we have see a melting permafrost releasing more greenhouse gases. We are witnessing the retreat of glaciers and sea ice, causing the land and ocean to absorb more heat. Increasing this atmospheric energy and rates of evaporation is also causing more intense storms and weather extremes, thereby damaging the infrastructure and agriculture of the planet. The shift toward biofuels, wind and solar, and many new regulations (like the Renewable Fuels Standards and RINS, and the low carbon fuels standards), are certainly a step in the right direction, incentivizing compliance and penalizing companies that pollute the Earth or its atmosphere. While these have helped reduce global warming, we still have a long way to go if we are to maintain the proper equilibrium necessary to sustain life long term on our planet.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms like Lee Enterprises Consulting certainly have greenhouse gas experts and normally offer a wide range of services in areas associated with the reduction of global warming, like biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis. These companies should have business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans and bio market research. The company also offers technical and engineering related services like techno economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis and expert witness engagements. They might also have strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
With over 150 experts worldwide, Lee Enterprises Consulting has experts in many specific clean and renewable areas, including anaerobic digestion, fermentation, biomass, conversion technologies for things like tires and railroad ties, organic synthesis, fuel additives, ethanol gas, biodiesel fuel including algae biofuels, solid state and industrial fermentation, green energy grants, ag biotech, agricultural waste, alcohol fuels, alternative proteins and animal-free products, sustainable foods, beverage fermentation, biocatalysis, biodiesel conversion, biogas production, biomass power, carbon intensity, co2 utilization, combined heat & power, Fischer-Tropsch technology, food waste, hydrothermal carbonization, industrial enzymes, landfill management, microbial fermentation, organic synthesis, plastic pyrolysis, plastic recycling, plastic waste, pyrolysis oil, reactor design, renewable identification number, the Renewable Fuel Standard (rfs2), solid recovered fuels, torrefaction and torrefied biomass, waste to energy, and waste-to-hydrogen. This is a multidisciplinary group of green energy consultants that is a virtual “one stop shop” for any client need and handles projects of all types and sizes.
Look at our experts and the services we provide. Most of our experts are also available to advise and serve as expert witnesses in bioeconomy litigation matters. For the larger projects, we specialize in putting together full service, interdisciplinary teams with one point of contact. See video about LEC here.
