TEDxHalifax - Jim Trussler - Hay Energy: The Next Green Revolution

Jim Trussler is CEO/Co-founder of LST Energy -- a startup commercializing a patented system to burn hay in traditional furnaces and boilers. Scientists have for decades been unsuccessfully trying to find a method to use hay for conventional heating applications. LST found a way. The system has been tested over two winters by the NS Agricultural College and exceeded expectations. This breakthrough enables a flood of new opportunities for farmers to monetize hay crops, entrepreneurs to process the hay into fuel pellets and consumers to cut their heating costs in half -- all in addition to the enormous environmental benefits of using hay instead of oil. Jim is a long time entrepreneur. At his core he is a CA specializing in international tax and finance. Over the past decade and a half he has been involved in 6 startups ranging from emergency medicine, to 3D innovations, social media apps and precision metal products. His current business bases are Halifax, Toronto, Barbados and Pictou.
