John has specialized in real estate finance, investment and development for most of his career. He owns self-storage and industrial properties, including three properties located on former landfills. In 2008, he founded Mustang Renewable Power Ventures to develop advanced recycling facilities in public private partnerships with cities and counties in North America. In 2011, he was awarded a contract by Santa Barbara County to develop and operate an advanced waste sorting facility including anaerobic digestion (AD) to divert 70% of the waste from landfilling and to produce renewable energy powering 2,000 homes. The Santa Barbara Project AD component includes two GE Jenbacher 416 CHP engines and additionally includes the concession for landfill gas to energy that will utilize two additional GE Jenbacher CHP engines (a 416 and a 412).
