To celebrate Lizzie German’s two-year anniversary as Investment and Technology Manager at Dimeta, we sat down with her to discuss her journey so far. As Lizzie has a background in chemistry, this also aligns with yesterday’s celebration of international day of women and girls in science. She shares her insights on why she chose to study science and the rewards she found in the field.
Can you tell us a little bit about you and your role at Dimeta?
I joined Dimeta two years ago as Investment and Technology Manager, part of the business development team. In this role, I manage partnerships between Dimeta and developers of renewable & recycled carbon DME production plants. This includes managing the project schedule, business cases, and commercial developments.
Additionally, I oversee the sustainability aspects of our operations, including sustainability assessments and compliance with relevant regulations. I am responsible for ensuring that the projects we pursue align with our sustainability goals and requirements. I find my current role interesting, challenging and fulfilling, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to developing low-carbon fuels for a more sustainable future.
When you reflect on your two years in Dimeta, could you share some key accomplishments or milestones that you have achieved within your role?
I have been part of Dimeta since day one, and I am very proud of the growth and impact the company has had in just two years. One of the significant achievements is that we have successfully increased awareness and recognition of low-carbon fuels, especially in off-grid and rural areas, and supported the development of the regulatory framework for renewable & recycled carbon DME use in the LPG sector.
A highlight for me is collaborating with experienced and innovative technology companies and project developers to increase DME production capacity. These partnerships present exciting opportunities for us to leverage cutting-edge technologies and innovation to further our mission of achieving a just and inclusive energy transition.
On a personal note, I was thrilled to win the Young Person in LPG Outstanding Achievement Award from Liquid Gas UK, and I am privileged to work with such a knowledgeable and passionate team.
