Ruy Anaya de la Rosa
Ruy Korscha Anaya de la Rosa holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from ITESM, Mexico City, an MSc in Sustainable Energy Technology from TU/e, the Netherlands, and a PhD in Environmental Science from Massey University, New Zealand. During his Postdoctoral research work at UNE, Australia, Ruy developed a GHG accounting methodology on biochar produced from poultry litter for the Australian GHG crediting system. He previously worked in the voluntary carbon markets, initially as project developer (based in Phnom Penh and Chefchaouen) and eventually as project manager (based in Paris) of wood-saving GHG emission reduction activities conducted by NGOs in rural areas of various developing countries. Ruy’s experience includes biochar, the technical and social implications of carbon markets, life cycle assessment, and the diffusion and successful adoption of appropriate renewable energy technologies in less industrialized countries. Ruy served as the B4SS Project Director from project inception to completion. He coordinated six different biochar projects in China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Peru and Vietnam.
