Mr. Pallo is a graduate of the Civil Engineering program at Oregon State University at Corvallis, Oregon. With licensure in several northwest states, Mr. Pallo had a successful 25-year career in the consulting arena providing professional engineering services to public agencies with a focus on public infrastructure projects. Mr. Pallo’s specific focus has been in the water and wastewater markets where he served as a designer, engineer, project manager, and finally, as principal engineer on many projects and for many clients. Mr. Pallo had the opportunity to work as a partner in two Oregon consulting firms before starting his own firm in 2008, Civil West Engineering Services, Inc.

Though no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of CLEARAS, Mr. Pallo remains a major shareholder of this company and has turned his attention to working with other startup and emerging technology firms focused on nutrient recovery/removal, processing of biomass into downstream products, energy and resource recovery, and other related technologies and interests.
