Investing in Sustainability is Good for Business!
Watch the video. #Cleantech 
Sustainability is pretty clearly one of the world's most important goals; but what groups can really make environmental progress in leaps and bounds? Chris McKnett makes the case that it's large institutional investors. He shows how strong financial data isn't enough, and reveals why investors need to look at a company's environmental, social and governance structures, too.

With places such as California and São Paulo, Brazil experiencing record droughts it's time to take a closer look at our drinking water supply and wastewater discharge policies. #WorldWaterDay #WaterIsLife 
Population growth and climate change will increase global water demand, leaving short supply if usage does not change

The shape of things to come.
Two new research reports project fast growth for nanogrid and microgrid technologies over the next three to 10 years, as commercial interest peaks and communities seek distributed, alternate power sources to run smart transportation systems or keep buildings running independently off the grid. The first forecast, from GTM Research, suggests that [...]

Employment
  • Bioneer: Internationally recognized speaker and consultant on Biomass to Biogas, Bioenergy, and Biofuels.
    Thought Leader, 2008 - present
    Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Cleantech, and Biotech from Seattle to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy Energy Security task force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues. He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, the scientific journal Nature, and by Repower America. He is currently consulting on integrating Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants.
  • DARPA
    Biological Systems Engineer, 2012 - 2014
    Recruited by TED Fellow Dr. Rachel Armstrong, The mission is to realize interstellar flight before the year 2100. We will accomplish this objective by researching and developing the science and the technologies that will make interstellar flight a reality, igniting the public’s interest, and engaging with all those prepared to invest in interstellar exploration. I am responsible for designing and integrating an Aquaculture (Algae-based) system that will be used for capturing and recycling the CO2 & Wastewater from the crew. That Algae will be used for producing oxygen, clean water, fertilizer for edible plants, and ultimately food aboard the ship.
  • Cleantech Open
    Director, 2013 - 2014
    The mission of Cleantech Open Miami is to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs from all across Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America with big ideas that address today’s most urgent Energy, Economic, and Environmental challenges. (Including Agriculture, Water, and Waste) Since its founding in 2006, CTO has established itself as the leading force for accelerating clean technology entrepreneurs. Of the nearly 600 companies we have worked with, 80% remain viable today and they have gone on to raise external capital exceeding $660 million. By developing a network of more than 1,500 professional volunteers who are willing to lend time and expertise to entrepreneurs who may otherwise not be able to get their ideas off the ground, we are facilitating the growth of the Cleantech Industry and all the positive impact that will come from such technologies. We recruit and match leaders to mentor cleantech startups with growth opportunities in: • Renewable Energies • Energy Storage & Distribution • Energy Efficiency • Renewable Chemicals & Biobased Materials • Information Technologies • Green Building • Transportation • Agriculture, Water & Waste With seven active regions across the US these connections are truly global. A startup based in Miami can receive mentoring from an expert in Houston, license its technology to a strategic partner in California, and receive venture capital from New York. The Cleantech Open provides a platform for that kind of interaction and visibility. My team and I have taken Cleantech Open from having zero presence in Florida to statewide recognition in less than 6 months.

Introduction
Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. It didn't take long for him to zero in on Algae as the best source.

Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Biotech, and Cleantech from San Francisco to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy's Energy Security Task Force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues about Algae technologies and applications.

He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, and even the scientific journal Nature.

He is currently consulting on integrating advanced Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's and Dairy Farms), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Hydroponic systems, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants. The resulting Algae biomass can be fractionalized into Oils, Proteins, and Carbohydrates which contain high value bioactive compounds useful for functional foods and animal feeds.

This is the correct address/location for the SSA of Dade and Broward counties. It's a brand new building so you shouldn't miss it.

I went to Seacamp in 1976 and I still think about all that I learned back then. The whole experience was so wonderful that it gave me a love of Marine Biology and ultimately set me on the path to my career in Phycology (The study of #Algae). It would be really great if they held some sort of reunion once a year so we could all share our stories and encourage others.

I don't know what these other reviewers are talking about. I toured this place over 2 years ago while I was staying at Gran Melia. It was under construction then although it looked as though work had been halted. It still looks very much the same way. Nothing is completed.

This place exceeded my every expectation. Everything was immaculate. The staff was really courteous and helpful. Even the bed was comfortable! We will definitely be returning and telling everyone about our experience.

When I go to a place like this I expect a Greek experience--food and music. What we got was club music played so loud it was difficult to talk (and we were sitting outside) and mediocre food that was barely mediterranean. What I will give them credit for was the service. The staff was very attentive. Would I recommend this place? That depends on what you are wanting. If you want a place to celebrate a special occasion in a really fun way then this is the place for you; Just don't go there expecting a great foodie experience.
