Dr Jinguang Hu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary, Canada. He leads “Biomass & Biorefinery Research Lab” at the University of Calgary. His current research is supported by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) and focuses on biomass valorization, sustainable energy, bioinspired materials/systems, and protein engineering for Energy, Environmental and Biomedical application. He has published ~200 papers including top journals such as Energy Environ Sci, J Am Chem Soc, Angew Chem, ACS Catal, Adv Energy Mater, Adv Funct Mater, Appl Catal B, Chem Catal, Chem Eng J, Green Chem etc. He is the External Advisory Board member of the Canada Biomass Energy Network, a member of the “China-Canada Joint Centre for BioEnergy”, a Research Fellow of GBIC, a recipient of “S.C. Trindade Award”, and an active participator in the International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy division. He currently serves as Editorial Board Members for Chemical Synthesis, Bioresources and Bioprocessing, Frontiers of Chemical Science & Engineering Resource Chemicals and Materials.
Areas of Research
Biomass is a key proposed component of several climate mitigation strategies, with substantial involvement of future energy and material systems. My research aim at use biomass, catalysis, and microbes to create new concept of energy/materials/systems for sustainable bioeconomy. These hybrid technology approaches provide potential route to economically viable energy production (hydrogen + biofuels) + biomass CO2 captured negative emission technologies (NET) (biomaterials + biochemicals), thus are clearly an important early step in the complete decarbonization of our society. Our current main research objective centres on the development of an efficient hybrid biomass refinery process, with the goal of converting biomass into value-added bio-based chemicals, materials and liquid biofuels etc., together with sustainable green H2 production.
