On the Road to Sustainable Production of Fuels and Chemicals 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 resources into fuels and products. Since 2007, he has led Great Lakes Bioenergy, a 25M dollar per year US Department of Energy renewable fuels and chemicals research center. He is also Director of the Wisconsin Energy Institute, an inter-disciplinary research unit that seeks to develop new low-carbon technologies. Dr. Donohue will describe the challenges of meeting society’s growing needs for energy and highlight how UW-Madison, as a Land Grant institution, and Great Lakes Bioenergy advances can produce sustainable low-carbon energy, fuels and chemicals for citizens, communities, and industry.
