George Huber, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA, discusses his latest research in converting biomass.
Professor Huber is known for his work on developing new generations of catalysts, reactors, and imagining tools for understanding and controlling the chemical transformation of biomass-derived oxygenates to fuels. He aims to develop economical processes for the production of renewable gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and petrochemicals derived from renewable lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks.
George Huber obtained his B.S. (1999) and M.S. (2000) degrees from Brigham Young University, USA, and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, in 2005. He did post-doctoral research at the Technical Chemical Institute at the Polytechnical University of Valencia, Spain, before joining the faculty at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he is currently Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering.
