Peter Van Walsum

As part of the Forest Bioproducts Reseach Institute, Peter Van Walsum is developing biomass processing operations, both chemical and biological, for fractionating and converting biomass feedstocks to value added fuels and bioproducts. The FBRI has done most of its work starting with woody biomass, but is also actively engaged with marine derived resources such as marine macro algae (seaweeds), producing products suitable for either food or industrial markets.
