Jack Saddler

NSERC Industrial Senior Chair, Task Leader, IEA Bioenergy Task 39

Wood Science

Faculty of Forestry

Jack’s research specializes on turning forest residues into liquid fuels and chemicals, in what is called the biorefining concept. He expects that new technologies will allow many chemicals and fuels that are currently products of oil refining to be produced more sustainably and, more economically, from biomass sources such as forestry residues or forestry energy crops such as fast rotation poplar. Jack has taken on the role of Task Leader for IEA Bioenergy Task 39 in order to facilitate international communication and promote research on the policy and technology issues related to the commercialization of liquid biofuels.
