Michael LemonVice PresidentBiogas Researchers

Michael Lemon is a BA graduate interested in the future of energy production and consumption in the United States. He was first introduced to the potential successes of renewable sources of energy while studying economics in Ribe, Denmark. He resided in student housing connected to the local biogas-based district heating system powered by manure from the surrounding farming community. Michael then continued his studies at Oklahoma State University located in a state with the highest number of CNG vehicles per-capita in the United States. He then completed his studies in 2013, at Franklin College Switzerland in international relations and international economics, while learning about the successes of anaerobic digestion and waste-to-energy systems found in greater Europe. Now he works as vice president for the Biogas Researches. In the same year, he founded a company with his father called Biogas Researchers, a not-for-profit organization with an important environmental mission: through education, research and other charitable activities, increase the amount of methane-rich biogas that is captured and beneficially used at landfills, wastewater treatment plants, farms (dairy, swine, poultry, beef) and other biodigester facilities across the United States.
