Alternative Fuels Expert

Andrew Daugulis

Chemical Engineering professor Andrew Daugulis can speak to the potential use of alternative fuels in light of increasing gasoline prices and environmental concerns.

Recognized worldwide for his research in biochemical and cell culture engineering, and its application to environmental biotechnology, he recently patented technology that will allow for more efficient production of ethanol, a clean-burning renewable fuel used in gasoline blends to improve vehicle performance. His discoveries have also been used in the treatment of toxic compounds existing as stored materials, or in air, water and soil environments. This technology applies particularly to the petrochemicals and petroleum refining industries, as well as in the production of alternative fuels.

Dr. Daugulis is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in international scientific journals, and is Queen's Research Chair in Biochemical and Cell Culture Engineering.
