Arthur Ragauskas held the first Fulbright Chair in Alternative Energy and is a Fellow of the International Academy of Wood Science and TAPPI. His research program at Georgia Institute of Technology is seeking to understand and exploit innovative sustainable bioresources. This multifaceted program is targeted to develop new and improved applications for nature’s premiere renewable biopolymers for biomaterials, biofuels, biopower, and bio-based chemicals. His research program has/is been sponsored by NSF, USDA, DOE, GA Traditional Industry Program, a consortium of industry partners, and several fellowship programs. His Fulbright sponsored activities at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden were focused on the forest biorefinery and new biofuel conversion technologies for lignocellulosics. Currently, Dr. Ragauskas manages a research group of thirty three graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows, a research scientist, and visiting scientists. He has collaborative research projects with several GA Tech faculty and is a program leader for a GA Tech Focused Research Program in Biofuels, BioPower and Biomaterials. In addition, he is the GA Tech team leader for Biological Energy Science Center (BESC) research efforts and team leader for an industrial consortium program titled Black Liquor Hemicellulose Recovery and Utilization.
