Program Manager, Environmental Programs, Warm Heart Foundation, Phrao, Thailand
“There are no losers with biochar; it’s good for the environment, it’s good for the economy and it’s sustainable.”
Gordon has been a professional engineer for over 30 years and has worked for a number of internationally renowned research and development organizations both in the UK and Australia.
After many years developing high-end manufacturing systems specializing in machine design, Gordon turned his attentions to projects in the developing world. Most recently, he spent three years as the Chief Engineer at the Laos Institute for Renewable Energy (LERE) in Vientiane, Laos PDR.
Here he developed an interest in greenhouse gas emissions reduction through the development of Improved Charcoal Production Systems (ICPS).
A chance meeting with Michael and the common interest in climate change mitigation led Gordon to his current position at Warm Heart where he manages biochar R&D.
