Chief Operating Officer, USA BioEnergy
Dr. Paul F. Schubert is the Chief Operating Officer of USA BioEnergy. USA BioEnergy is developing an ultra-low carbon intensity forestry waste to renewable diesel plant in south Arkansas. The plant uses highly efficient gasification, Fischer-Tropsch, and hydrocarbon upgrading technologies combined with capture and sequestration (CCS) to achieve a highly negative carbon footprint.

Dr. Schubert has over 35 years of experience in renewable fuels, natural gas monetization, mechanical integrity, and commercialization of innovative technologies in the petrochemical and natural gas industries. Prior to joining USA BioEnergy he served as Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director for Velocys.
