Miles comes from an entrepreneurial background of engineering project management. Along with Matome Mashao, a finance and venture capitalist, they consider all in the company, of equal significance.

IAM Green Carbon was an idea born of a bag of cracked macadamia shells, the kind used for the garden. Using long patented but relatively untested technologies, this idea translated into a project that converts most bio waste into high grade activated carbon. The result is energy, clean water, bio diesel and highly saleable domestic and export products, as well as job creation, skills development and grass root wealth.

IAM Green Carbon and the technology used to produce it, fits into a couple of recycled shipping containers and can be installed anywhere at minimal cost. IAM stands for Innovation, Accountability and Motivation.
