MABR chemical engineering and materials science researcher Bruce Dale is ranked 22nd on the list of the Top 100 People in Bioenergy.

The list, which was compiled by Biofuels Digest, was based on a readership poll; readers submitted 15,000 entries.

Dale, who also is editor-in-chief of the highly ranked journal Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, is one of only two academics who ranked high on the list.

His profile reads: “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, the 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,” Dale said. “I am particularly grateful to be here at Michigan State University, where we have such a strong commitment to the bioeconomy.”

“We are very pleased to see Bruce recognized for his outstanding research and leadership,” said Steve Pueppke, MABR director and MSU associate vice president for research and graduate studies. “He is a testament to the high caliber of researchers with whom we are privileged to work.”
