Bruce Dale Makes List of Top 100 People in Bioenergy

October 12, 2010

Bruce Dale, professor of chemical engineering and materials science, claims the number 22 spot on the list of the Top 100 People in Bioenergy. The list, which was compiled by Biofuels Digest, “the world’s most widely read biofuels daily,” was based on a readership poll; readers submitted 15,000 entries.

Dale, who is also editor in chief of the highly ranked journal Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, is one of only two academics who ranked this high on the list. His profile cites: “Second among all academics in this year’s poll is Dr. Bruce Dale at Michigan State, who in addition to being a noted pioneer in cellulosic ethanol has been out in front in terms of opposing some of the excesses of indirect land use change theory, measurement of which has bedeviled efforts to stabilize the demand for various biofuels feedstocks and fuels.”

"Having worked my entire career to develop sustainable biofuels, I am honored to be placed among a group of very fine people,” said Dale. “I am particularly grateful to be here at Michigan State University, where we have such a strong commitment to the bioeconomy."
