Anne Slaughter Andrew has been nominated by US President Obama to head the U.S Embassy in Costa Rica.

Andrew, a graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., received her law degree from the Indiana School of Law and currently holds a position in the Washington, D.C.-based company New Energy Nexus as president, where her duties include advising companies and entrepreneurs on energy-related investments.

The White House statement issued Thursday stated that Andrew has continually been actively engaged with conservation and environmental organizations, including The Sierra Club, The Nature Conservancy and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, and she is experienced in creating and managing public policy initiatives in the environmental and clean-energy arena. However, her environmental record stretches even further back as she served as co-chair of the Environment/Energy Team at Baker & Daniels.

If the nomination is approved, her appointment could result in critical changes regarding the environmental policies of Costa Rica, including the strengthening of U.S./Costa Rican cooperative conservation efforts and the further development of the Green Energy Market in Costa Rica.

Michael Klein, Chief Development Officer for the United Biofuels of America (UBA) told The Costa Rica News, “I think this is very exciting news for Costa Rica’s emerging Biofuels Market. The potential of this industry for both Costa Rica and the U.S. is just now becoming clear. One particular segment of this industry is extremely important, Green Diesel, which is produced from Jatropha curcus, a local high yield oil bearing tree that has become the #1 choice of biodiesel feedstock. In addition, this plant has a very high sequestration rate for CO2 making Jatropha plantation developments an ideal candidate for green carbon off set projects outside the U.S. I’m sure all of these areas of development will prosper with Andrews presence.”

United Biofuels of America is a leading green energy research and advisory council dedicated to developing sustainable, environmentally and socially friendly biofuel projects in Central and South America.
