Current position

Manager, Biomass Sector, Energy & Environment Directorate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)

Country

United States

Topic of Presentation:

Renewable Routes to Jet Fuel

Career history:

  • Dr. John E. Holladay is responsible for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s 118 million research portfolio including biofuels, products and energy. The portfolio ranges from sustainable utilization of terrestrial biomass and marine systems to fuels and chemicals via chemical and biological catalysis.
  • Dr. Holladay has overseen significant growth in the research volume at PNNL during his tenure, particularly in catalyst capability at the Bioproducts, Sciences and Engineering Laboratory, and in sustainability analysis as PNNL seeks to improve the science base for conversion of biomass with respect to understanding water and land use impacts. Prior to his current assignment, Holladay’s research focus was in developing new catalysts and processes for conversion of a variety of biomass feedstocks to chemicals, with a focus on condensed phase heterogeneous catalysis. He also played key roles in multiple assessment activities examining potential uses for sugars, lignin, and lipids.
  • Dr. Holladay served as the chief technology officer for the National Advanced Biofuels Consortium and chief operations officer for the National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts, both consortia that include collaboration among national laboratories, industry, and academia. He is a distinguished inventor of Battelle holding 17 patents for work in diverse areas, all unified by the use of renewables as feedstocks for the creation of value-added chemicals.

Areas of expertise:

Dr. Holladay’s current research is directed at catalysts and process development. More recently this has included utilizing combinatorial techniques to solve problems in the area of condensed phase heterogeneous catalysis. He has been a driver for bringing the combinatorial capabilities on-line at the Laboratory and, working with other scientists at PNNL, is developing research programs supported by the facility.
