When a company starts as a burning man art project and transforms into a lab trying to solve one of the world’s biggest development problems, you might expect it to attract a motley crew. That’s why James Regulinski fits in perfectly at ALL Power Labs.
A former sea vagabond turned mechanical engineer, he’s worked on everything from robotic sailboats in the US to a shit-to-energy plant in Ghana. His passion—building technologies that connect existing systems in new ways to solve large problems—is exactly what he does at ALL Power Labs, where he works on small machines that turn agricultural waste into on-demand electricity. The All Power Labs Gasifier provides clean energy to villages, schools, and businesses in 70 countries, using conventional technologies in new ways to make waste into something needed all over the world.
