Jordan R. Solomon has held the position of President and CEO of Ecostrat for over 20 years where he oversees the Biomass Advisory Group and the Biomass Supply Group.
Over the past several years Jordan has led the development of the Canadian National Standards for Biomass Supply Chain Risk for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the US National Standards for Biomass Supply Chain Risk for the US Department of Energy (USDOE). These projects are designed to drive additional capital into North America’s bio-economy by clarifying biomass feedstock risks and standardizing risk quantification for the capital markets.
The development of the BSCR Standards represents a significant public-private partnership intended to serve as a major building block for a more sustainable economy in Canada, supporting the implementation of Canada’s Clean Fuel Standard and helping to accelerate financing of much needed bio-projects.
As head of Ecostrat’s Advisory Group, Jordan directed development of the Biomass Supply Network©, the largest proprietary biomass supply database in North America. He has led bioenergy project advisory teams to advise on feedstock supply and risk for JP Morgan, Shell, Coca-Cola and Siemens. Ecostrat is one of the leading companies in use of advanced stochastic modelling and Monte Carlo simulation to understand and mitigate bioenergy feedstock risk.
As head of Ecostrat’s Biomass Supply Group, Jordan has overseen development and operation of biomass supply chains for over 5,000,000 tons of biomass and organic feedstock over two decades for biogas, bioenergy, biofuel and biochemical projects. He has negotiated and structured biomass supply chains, financed and executed bulk shipments of biomass overseas to Europe and Asia.
