Energy Expertise: 

Troy Runge's research focuses on biorefinery systems that create the most value from biomass feedstocks and make both renewable fuels and materials. He is investigating diverse biomass processes to produce fiber for paper and sugar for ethanol by retrofitting pulp mills. His research is heavily applied and utilizes collaborations with Wisconsin companies. Ultimately, the research could improve processes for biomass aggregation, storage and transportation.
