Bio

As Program Coordinator, Hagen develops novel and innovation solutions for transforming wood, lignite, recycled plastics, tear-off shingles and cotton linters into useful green-based products for re-use.  Successfully developed and defined a variety of torrefaction techniques in which the combustion, handling, grinding and stowage properties of wood and ag-based biofuels are heated in an oxygen deprived atmosphere and prepared for densification.  Pioneered an agglomeration process in which delicate corn stover fibers are converted into highly absorptive, free flowing, granules uniquely capable of displacing inefficient clay type absorbents in the market place.
