Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Yih Jing (Justin) L, CEO of log AL-G.
The world’s energy crisis will remain one of the biggest challenges we face in the 21st century. My company, log AL-G, will make a prototype that uses wastewater to nurture algae and convert it into biofuels, purified tap water, and fertilizer. log AL-G’s mission is to solve the problem of cholera outbreaks, ecological deterioration on the shores, and slow modernization of native land around the Strait of Malacca in Southeast Asia. This geographic location is strategic – 30% of the world’ shipping containers pass through this strait. My initiative is to work with international investment banks, corporations, and governments to present a prototype for this work. I am currently a student at Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day HS (MCNDHS) with plans to pursue both engineering and entrepreneurship.
