On the Road to Sustainable Production of Chemicals and Fuels from Biomass

Tim Donohue is Ira Baldwin and UW Foundation Fetzer-Bascom Professor of Bacteriology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is an international expert on the sustainable bio-based conversion of renewable raw materials into fuels and products. Since 2007, he has led Great Lakes Bioenergy, a Department of Energy renewable fuels and chemicals research center. He is also Director of the Wisconsin Energy Institute, an inter-disciplinary research unit at UW-Madison that seeks to develop valuable, low-carbon, current, fuels and industrial products from renewable raw materials. Dr. Donohue’s talk will focus on efforts to convert abundant residues generated by the deconstruction of plant biomass into valuable products that can decarbonize manufacturing and increase the economic and environmental sustainability of an emergent lignocellulose biorefinery industry.
