Fulcrum BioEnergy, Inc., a pioneer in the production of zero-carbon, transportation fuels from household waste based in Pleasanton, California, U.S.A., announced the appointment of Greg Heinlein as vice president and chief financial officer (CFO). 

Heinlein brings more than 30 years of experience in a variety of financial roles, including CFO for private and public companies in the chemical, oil and gas, environmental solutions and technology industries. As Fulcrum’s new CFO, Heinlein will have responsibility for a wide range of corporate financial affairs, highlighted by fundraising and support of key strategic relationships to support the company’s large growth and capital needs for Fulcrum’s operations.

“Greg brings a level of leadership and experience needed to guide and support Fulcrum’s continued growth, shaping the future success of the business,” said Eric Pryor, president and CEO of Fulcrum. “Having raised more than USD30 billion in both public and private entities, Greg’s expertise will help Fulcrum deliver on our vision to build many more waste-to-fuel plants across North America and select countries worldwide.”

Greg’s hiring comes as Fulcrum has recently completed construction on its Sierra BioFuels Plant located in Storey County, Nevada, U.S.A., approximately 20 miles east of Reno, is the first commercial-scale plant converting household waste into drop-in transportation fuels in the country. With construction complete, start-up and commissioning work on the plant is nearly complete with fuel production at Sierra scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2022. The plant will convert approximately 175,000 tons of prepared waste feedstock into approximately 11 million gallons of zero-carbon syncrude annually, that will then be upgraded to drop-in transportation fuels, such as sustainable aviation fuels and renewable diesel.
