Clint Pemberton Olmsted Falls, Ohio Biomass Account Executive quasar energy group

What education are you bringing with you to this position?
I have a B.S. in agricultural systems management from Texas A&M University.

Please describe your agricultural background.
Previously I worked at Channel, a division of Monsanto, where I sold corn, soybean, sorghum and alfalfa seed to growers in the Northeast counties of Ohio. I grew up in west Texas where my family grew cotton primarily.

What territory will you cover?
Central and northern Ohio.


What are your new responsibilities?
I am actively searching for companies with organic waste material, including FOG (fat, oil and grease), food processing byproducts, biosolids, crop residuals, etc.

I am helping companies not only solve their waste needs but also to have a more sustainable waste management strategy. I am involved in setting rates, identifying good biomass sources, writing proposals and developing relationships with our customers to be their total organic waste solution.

In addition, I help agricultural customers identify soil nutrient needs on a field-by-field basis and optimize crop performance potential with the help of quasar’s organic soil amendments.

What previous positions have you held?
District sales manager for Channel Bio and sales representative for B & J Distributing.

What excites you most about working in your new role?
Giving companies a “green” and sustainable solution to their organic waste management strategy. I work with customers to divert that waste from landfills and use it to produce energy that will lessen our reliance on fossil fuels.

We have too much waste in this country that could be put to better use in processes like ours. We have to change the way we look at energy.

How will you be of most help to producers in your region or area of expertise?
In two ways. First, I will help our producers establish a “green” image with their communities. Choosing to bring their waste to us shows that they are more concerned with decreasing their regional waste footprint and finding uses for their waste. I also work with our equate team to demonstrate to growers the great fertilizer value of our organic effluent for their soil and crops.

Why did you choose this company?
Because of their goals in revolutionizing the waste-to-energy industry. quasar is on the leading edge of this budding industry and it is exciting to be a part of it.

What goals would you like to accomplish while in this position?

  1. Secure enough biomass to run our facilities at optimum capacity, allowing us to build more plants and increase our position in the marketplace.
  2. Divert waste from landfills that can be used for other purposes.
  3. Increase awareness of a cost-effective, more environmentally friendly and sustainable solution to companies’ current waste management needs. PD
