Joseph J. James is President of Agri-Tech Producers, LLC (ATP), a South Carolina holding company for innovative biomass developing and environmental remediating processes and technologies he has licensed or invented, including processes for converting biomass into various bio-products and bio-fuels. He is also the founder of and several, state-based operating affiliates, like Cleveland, Ohio-based, Agri-Tech Ohio, LLC (ATP-OH), which utilize the processes and technologies he has licensed or invented. Mr. James has invented and patented a Combined Remediation Biomass and Bio-Product Production (CRBBP) Process, which cost-effectively remediates contaminated soils and water, using the enhanced phytoremediation capabilities of the prodigious root systems of certain bio-crops; then converts the plants and their resulting, lower-cost biomass into various, cost-advantaged bio-products and bio-fuels. Mr. James has also licensed and commercialized innovative and patented torrefaction (carbonization) technology, developed by NC State University, which converts biomass into a variety of bio-products, including: fillers or extenders, which are used to make stronger, lighter and water-resistant plastics; biochars, to increase soil productivity; a cleaner and safer, plant-based alternative to wood-based charcoal cooking fuel, used in 3rd World countries; and a bio-coal, which can be co-fired in coal-fired power plants, with minimal equipment upgrades, to proportionately reduce their GHG and chemical pollution emissions. c Mr. James believes that his CRBBP Process may be one of the world's most cost-effective ways to capture atmospheric carbon dioxide and to re-use and/or sequester the captured carbon in the cost-advantaged bio-products the process makes. Mr. James has had an impressive, 33-year career as an economic development professional, where he has been often heavily involved in technology-led development. In 2018, he completed a 6-year term as a Secretarial appointee on the federal Biomass R&D Technical Advisory Committee and is a member of the Clean Energy Business Network. Mr. James received a BS, in Science, from Union College and has studied Law and Business Administration at New York University. He has received numerous awards, including being named a winner of the Purpose Prize, in 2008, for his work to include poor, rural communities of color in the “Green Economy”.
