Fortistar Retains Renewable Energy Veteran William Held’s Firm

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--()--Today, Fortistar, a private company focused on investments in energy sources for transitioning to a zero-carbon economy, announced that it has retained Specialized Biogas Services (SBS) headed by William Held. Under Bill’s leadership, SBS will be assisting in the development, implementation and performance of a variety of services related to the landfill gas and renewable energy markets.

“At Fortistar, we believe strongly that sustainability,at no additional cost, is the key to a successful transition to a zero-carbon society.”

Held has more than 35 years of experience in the environmental and renewable energy markets, and services development; specifically, with landfills, landfill gas, biogas technologies, and all aspects of renewable energy project development and implementation.

SBS will assist Fortistar in leveraging their capabilities in landfill gas to energy plant operations and maintenance to develop services for clients in the solid waste market.
