Consulting Group Adds Biomass, Pyrolysis and Torrefaction Experts

6/10/15 – Little Rock, Arkansas.  Lee Enterprises Consulting, Inc., the world’s largest renewable fuels consulting group, is pleased to announce the addition of Douglas Bradley and Michael Wild to its team of experts. 

Bradley has a B.Sc.(Honours, Mathematics) from Queen’s University, and an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business.  He has 30+ years’ experience in oil & gas, banking, and forest products. Bradley was the Director-Strategic Planning for a major forest products company for over a decade, focusing on strategic planning, capital investment evaluation, and carbon sequestration from forest management activities.  He has consulted in bioenergy and climate change issues with clients in the EU, Canada, and the US.  For almost a decade, Bradley was the Canadian Representative on IEA Bioenergy Task 40- Bio-trade.  He is a past President of the Canadian Bioenergy Association and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the World Bioenergy Association.

Wild is an economist and engineer.  He has been active in renewable energies for over 25 years and is President of the International Biomass Torrefaction Council (IBTC). Wild pioneered biomass fired district heating systems in Austria and conversion of coal fired systems to biomass in former socialist countries.  He started the first internet based biomass trading platform (ABEX) in 1999, and for over a decade, led the international biomass trading company, EBES, in creating numerous intercontinental supply chains for palm kernel shell, pellets and wood chips.  Since 2007, Wild has been a world leader in torrefaction technology development, supporting producers and trading houses in the US, Eastern Europe, Russia and Malaysia developing their trade into Europe.

These are two renowned world experts and I could not be prouder to have them with our group.”
