Robin Stuart
My specialties are insect ecology and biological control. My major individual and collaborative research projects involve investigations of the role of ants and other predators in the biological control of the citrus root weevil, Diaprepes abbreviatus, improving the effectiveness of entomopathogenic nematodes for augmentative biological control of Diaprepes, the movement and longevity of adult Diaprepes, the importance of soil variables in explaining adult Diaprepes distributions within and among sites, and the effectiveness of strategic pesticide applications and rootstock resistance in promoting the health and survival of trees under stress from Diaprepes and Phytophthora.
University of Florida CREC, Lake Alfred

Winfried Schäfer
Technique in organic farming, renewable energy

Jeff Buderer

Village One Foundation

Hala Chaoui
Currently a postdoc at the University of Illinois' Energy Biosciences Institute . Research topics:
Earthworm casts as fertilizer, compared to compost and synthestic fertilzers.
Electric earthworm separation, to streamline waste bioconversion by earthworms, and make organic soil amendments more affordable
Biofilters as a means to reduce pollution (ammonia and greenhouse gases).
Effect of mixing and innovative alternative to mixing of biogas yield of biogesters, with a goal to optimize biogas production. Optimizing bioethanol production, focus on feedstock storage and pre-processing.

Alwyn Smith
Administrator of Southern African Alternative Energy Association (SAAEA)
We advocate policy development on behalf of our members at decision making government level. We also promote understanding of the industry and its potential through tools such as industry events, forums, conferences, newsletters and publications, our objective is to provide borderless access to the information that can affect today's clean energy industries as much as tomorrow's world.
