Nathalie Hoffman is a Director in the Energy Compliance Services group at Weaver, where she assists clients to prepare estimated carbon intensity reports and fuel pathway applications, their Monitoring plans and the quarterly and annual reports required after certification, interfacing with CARB on the client’s behalf when necessary or desirable. She has been advising clients on matters related to the LCFS since it first went into effect in 2011, and is certified by CARB as an LCFS verifier.
While Nathalie assists producers of traditional liquid biofuels like ethanol, biodiesel and renewable diesel, she has a special focus on RNG and innovative fuel pathways. She therefore joined the ABC and is now a member of the Board of Directors of the organization. In addition, she serves as Co-Chair of the Agriculture Committee where she is working with others to expand the categories of livestock manure that can obtain an ultra-low carbon intensity score under the LCFS, as well as advocating for the inclusion of carbon reductions from sustainable agricultural practices in calculating the CI score.
Nathalie also understands alternative fuel production from the point of view of a project developer. With a background in project finance as a partner of a major corporate law firm, she founded and was CEO of a company developing a utility-scale biorefinery in California’s Imperial Valley. The feedstock was locally-grown agricultural biomass.
Her educational background includes an undergraduate BS degree in Mathematics from the University of Michigan, a JD degree from UCLA School of Law and an MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. Nathalie is a member in good standing of the California Bar.
She’s located in Los Angeles, CA, with easy access to CARB in Sacramento.
