Brendon Lynch, a 2016 graduate of NC State majoring in Biological and Agricultural Engineering, shares about his jump from campus to a sustainability-related career.
How is sustainability part of your current work?
I currently work for an engineering company, Biomass Controls PBC, to help develop a sustainable waste management system. I am an applications engineer and project manager for our product. I develop how the system interfaces with current waste management technology. The system treats both agricultural and human waste by converting the waste into thermal energy used to run the system. It also produces a byproduct called biochar that can be used as an air filter or a soil enhancer. We are working toward it being a 100% self-sustaining technology that’s perfect for sustainable environments and developing countries.
