报告题目: Cellulosic Ethanol: Sustainable Transportation from Plants

报告人:Dr. Charles E. Wyman(点击查看详细信息)

  Charles Wyman has devoted most of his career to leading the advancement of technology for biological conversion of cellulosic biomass to ethanol and other products. In the fall of 2005, he joined the University of California at Riverside as the Ford Motor Company Chair in Environmental Engineering where he focuses most of his current research on pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis. Before joining UCR, he was the Paul E. and Joan H. Queneau Distinguished Professor in Environmental Engineering Design at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College where he continues as an Adjunct Professor. Dr. Wyman is also a Cofounder, Chief Development Officer, and Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board for Mascoma Corporation, a startup company focused on biomass conversion to ethanol and other products.

  Before joining Dartmouth College in the fall of 1998, Dr. Wyman was Director of Technology for BC International and led process development for the first cellulosic ethanol plant planned for Jennings, Louisiana. Between 1978 and 1997, he served as Director of the Biotechnology Center for Fuels and Chemicals at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado; Director of the NREL Alternative Fuels Division; and Manager of the Biotechnology Research Branch; and held several other leadership positions at NREL, mostly focused on R&D for biological conversion of cellulosic biomass to fuels and chemicals. He has also been Manager of Process Development for Badger Engineers, an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Hampshire, and a Senior Chemical Engineer with Monsanto Company.

  Wyman has a BS degree in chemical engineering from the University of Massachusetts, MA and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from Princeton University, and an MBA from the University of Denver. He has authored about 80 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, made more than 50 presentations for publication and more than 150 other presentations, many invited, written over 30 technical reports, chaired numerous technical meetings and sessions, edited 9 symposium proceedings, edited a book on biomass ethanol technology, and been awarded 12 patents. He is also on the editorial board of several technical journals and the board of directors or board of advisors for several organizations and institutions.

报告题目: Production of Synthetic Fuels from Carbonaceous Matter using Steam Hydrogasification

报告人: Dr. Joseph Norbeck (点击查看详细信息)

   Joseph Norbeck is the Yeager Families Professor of Environmental Engineering and former Director of CE-CERT. He now heads the UCR Environmental Research Institute. He joined the University of California, Riverside, in January 1992 after working as head of the Chemistry Department, Research Staff, Ford Motor Co. He has a Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry from the University of Nebraska. He has published more than seventy-five papers in theoretical chemistry, atmospheric modeling, vehicle emissions, and advanced vehicle technology. His current research includes the relationship between vehicle emissions and air quality, development of renewable fuels, and development of advanced vehicle technology. Dr. Norbeck was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1999. He received the South Coast Air Quality Management District Clean Air Award in 1995, the Valley Group Award in 1997 for Excellence in Environment and Research, and was elected as local leader for the City of Riverside and received the Regional Leader of the Year Award in 1998. He has held a gubernatorial appointment as an Air Quality Expert on the California Inspection/Maintenance Review Committee and is a member of several other committees including the Cal/EPA Environmental Technology Partnership Task Force, the Executive Research Advisory Committee of the Society of Automotive Engineers, and Scientific Review Committee for the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
