AgCert International and AES Climate Solutions, Mr. Ramos provided corporate guidance, vision, leadership, management, and problem-
solving efforts for over 700 worldwide anaerobic digestion systems/renewable energy projects. He was also in charge of determining the
technical, commercial, and economic viability of renewable energy technologies/products as well as the performance improvement
programs. He has co-authored several technical articles and is a co-inventor for seven patents. Charlie is fluent in English, Spanish, and
Dwight D. Back, Ph.D.
Dr. Back received his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton, Ohio, in 1984, and his master’s and
doctorate degrees from the University of Notre Dame in 1986 and 1989, respectively. Dr. Back’s Ph.D. dissertation was in the area of heat
transfer, mass transfer, reaction kinetics, and fluid mechanics. He has been a key innovator for small and large companies in the private
and public sectors, including EG&G and Monsanto (Department of Energy contractors), Cordis Corporation (a medical device franchise of
Johnson & Johnson), and Mainstream Engineering Corporation, and is currently a consultant to the medical device and biofuels industries.
Over the past 22 years, Dr. Back has made numerous contributions to process, materials, and product development across a broad
spectrum of technology areas. He has published more than 100 technical articles and is inventor on 20 U.S. patents. He is a member of
the honorary engineering societies Tau Beta Pi and Sigma Xi, and a charter officer of the East-Central Florida AIChE section.
Mr. Meyer graduated with his BS degree in biology and environmental science in 1991 and obtained his master’s degree in environmental

Regulatory Analysis Manager. While at AgCert International and AES Climate Solutions, Ms. Speder wrote over 120 PDDs and guided
those projects through the validation and registration processes. Of the PDDs written, 121 have been registered as CDM projects to date.
She has also co-authored several published technical articles.
Nidal joined BioGreen Engineering as a senior research engineer in 2011. His previous years of experience spanned product and process
development, project management, technology testing and problem solving in various chemical waste and environmental applications.
Nidal was the director of research and development and was an expert panel member for the development of testing protocol for NSF
International. He serves as an industrial advisory board member for the chemical engineering department at Florida Tech. During his
career, Nidal developed many various innovative methods and holds 22 patents most of which are related to the treatment of wastewater.
Mr. Samad holds a BS in Chemistry from the Lebanese University and BS and MS degrees in Chemical Engineering and Environmental
Science from the Florida Institute of Technology.
Mr. Jones has over 21 years of experience in agriculture and 6 years’ experience in CDM carbon credit methodologies and methodological
calculations, with emphasis on swine and dairy anaerobic digestion of livestock waste. He is BioGreen’s Chief Scientist on renewable
energy and GHG reduction projects. Prior to BioGreen Engineering, Mr. Jones was the senior scientist technical expert for AgCert
International and AES Climate Solutions. He gained a vast amount of renewable energy and biogas expertise while serving as the Senior
Scientist, responsible for developing and implementing comprehensive calculators for many CDM methodologies as well as the developing
and implementing software for monitoring and assessing anaerobic digester performance for swine, dairy and POME anaerobic digesters
as well landfill projects. He has co-authored several peer-reviewed technical papers in journals such as Journal of Environmental Quality
on such areas as nitrous oxide emissions and assessment of soil emissions models.
