Nobody Rises Alone: Women Supporting Women

We are excited to announce the second annual Women In Biogas and RNG Luncheon that will take place during Biogas Americas on Wednesday, May 17.
This event is open to all women, under-represented genders, and their allies who are attending the conference. We want to celebrate those in the industry who work hard to ensure our voices are heard and help us to operate on equal footing as our counterparts.
The event will be hosted by Kavi Ramakrishnan, vice president of origination for Brightmark, a circular innovation company developing solutions focused on plastics renewal and anaerobic digestion. Kavi leads the origination team at Brightmark where she is responsible for expanding Brightmark’s project pipeline into organic waste recovery projects and originating greenfield RNG projects on dairy farms across the United States.
