AEGIS Hedging Appoints Zander Capozzola as Vice President of Renewable Fuels
The Woodlands, Texas, November 1, 2022 – AEGIS Hedging Solutions ("AEGIS" or “the Company"), a leader in technology and expertise for commodity and environmental markets, today announced the appointment of Zander Capozzola to the newly created position of Vice President of Renewable Fuels. With over 15 years of experience in environmental markets price reporting, analysis and consulting, Capozzola will be responsible for leading AEGIS’ continued growth in the fast-moving biofuels and renewable fuels markets.
Interest and investment in renewable fuels, including renewable natural gas, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel, continue to increase. The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and various Low Carbon Fuel Standards (LCFS) markets have provided attractive economics to many projects over the years, but the extreme volatility of the Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) and LCFS markets has caused challenges for project developers. AEGIS assists developers and investors with understanding the value of the fuels, their environmental attributes and regulations driving the marketplace – and how to place hedges to increase financial certainty.
"Since our acquisition of Emission Advisors last year, AEGIS has introduced many new capabilities in the environmental markets to support our customers. Zander’s experience with renewable fuels, feedstocks, and the related environmental credits will serve our customers well as they pursue emerging opportunities in the renewables space," said Bryan Sansbury, Chairman and CEO of AEGIS.
Capozzola joins AEGIS from Argus, where he spent the last decade covering Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO), RINs, Tier-3 sulfur credits, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel from the premier price-reporting agency in biofuels and related markets. Capozzola will serve under the leadership of Mike Taylor, who leads environmental efforts at AEGIS.
"AEGIS has changed the way companies navigate and manage commodity and compliance markets – even changing how we view risk," said Capozzola. "AEGIS is in an enviable market-leading position with customers, modern technology, proprietary analytics and talented colleagues in an unmatched culture. As a result, our customers place tremendous trust in us, and I look forward to tailoring our capabilities to meet their unique needs in both nascent and more mature markets."
