Graham Thorsteinson graduated with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2007.  As the first plant based energy engineer at General Mills, Graham delivered a total of $5,000,000 in energy savings at one General Mills cereal plant, including a 29% BTU per pound of product reduction.  Graham influenced senior leadership to create additional plant based energy engineer jobs in the larger plants.  He then created a CI energy process for them to follow.  He now leads this energy engineering team in cereal, snacks, meals, and international divisions.  His process and leadership have resulted in $13,000,000 in additional savings in the last four years (11% BTU/lb reduction) with a plan to deliver similar savings over the next few years.  Graham won AEE's International Young Energy Professional of the Year in 2013, Region II Energy Professional Development in 2015, and Region III Corporate Energy Management in 2015.
