The US is the Saudi Arabia of garbage. And Illinois Clean Fuels is working to use our surplus of municipal waste as its primary input, turning trash into biofuel. This solves two problems at once, providing a sustainable source of energy through a process that captures and stores CO2 underground. So, how does it work?
Stephen Johnson is the Founder and CEO of Illinois Clean Fuels, a synthetic fuel project projected to produce more than 400M+ gallons of ultra-clean, climate-friendly diesel and jet fuel from municipal garbage every year. Mark Fitz is an advisor for Illinois Clean Fuels and the President of Star Oilco, a full-service oil company known for its outside-the-box solutions for fleets seeking to incorporate biofuels in their daily operations.
Today, Stephen and Mark join Alexsandra and Christophe to explain how the Illinois Clean Fuels gasification process works and what they are doing to eliminate the life cycle footprint of the fuel. They also discuss what’s holding back the widespread use of biodiesel and how Illinois Clean Fuels is working to overcome those roadblocks. Listen in for insight around how some prominent airlines and oil and gas companies are providing leadership around climate change and backing critical innovations in the space!

Audio enhancement is all about making the audio sound it's very best. this is where we run processes like noise reduction, compression, vocal leveling, equalization, deverb, dynamics processing and any other process that will maximize the quality of your vocals.
During manual editing, we listen through every second of audio, and reduce things like, false starts, shuddering, umms and ahhs, ect. There’s a lot that goes into the editing process. It’s important that we edit out the unwanted words/noises without your listeners knowing that the episode was edited. There’s nothing worse than a choppy, over-edited conversation.
