Paul Kamp, Founding Partner, has an extensive background in bio-based fuels, chemicals and polymers, renewable resources, legislative affairs, and new technology implementation. Based in Chicago, he heads the commercialization efforts for Inbicon Biomass Refinery technology. Paul has traveled extensively across the U.S. and Canada, collaborating with owners, operators, investors, engineering firms, contractors, and regulatory agencies in multiple industries, including fuels, biomass, and power generation. Much of his work is with the existing grain ethanol industry, developing sustainable, co-location platforms for cellulosic and grain ethanol production.
While with Accenture’s Executive Consulting group, Paul led a group of global fuel, forest, waste, and chemi¬cal companies in bio-based supply-chain strategy and best practices exploration. As North American busi¬ness development director for Delta-T Corporation during its heyday, he played key roles in grain ethanol projects totaling over $1 billion. Paul also worked as a consultant to Noble Americas Clean Fuels marketing division, screening and building relationships with over one hundred proposed U.S. biofuel project groups, many of which became leading ethanol producers.
Paul began his professional career in polymer research, first in hydrogels for contact lens applications (Wesley-Jessen/CIBA), with Quantum Chemical in polyolefin pilot production, and with Advac Elastomers as Director of Business Development for recycled rubber use in truck and automotive tires.
A long time supporter of ethanol and domestic fuel production, Paul was a member of Chicago Area Clean Cities, National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition, and American Coalition for Ethanol long before working in the industry. He is a frequent speaker at ethanol and biomass conferences.
