Paul graduated from UW-Green Bay in 1978 with a Master of Environmental Arts and Sciences degree.

Focusing his career on improving our environment with technology, he started a company, Applied Filter Technology, to allow the use of waste derived methane to be cleaned and used to make electricity, natural gas, and vehicle fuel. By centering his efforts on BioGas chemistry, his company has been able to develop patentable technologies which allowed the use of BioGas in Cogeneration Engines, Turbines, Microturbines, Fuel Cells, and boilers. He has also been able to produce clean burning natural gas and vehicle fuels while lowering Greenhouse emissions.

The company he founded is growing multinational with 167 operational sites in North America and 300 total international sites for BioGas to Energy production.
