2021 Fellow

Jamison Watson

PhD Institution
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Jamison’s PhD research utilized a technique that massively accelerates the natural process that creates oil to produce liquid fuel from waste such as manure, excrement, and agricultural waste. He now plans to use his Fellowship to develop a model biorefinery that can not only produce fuel from waste but also generate other valuable products from the process, such as hydrogen gas and drinking water. Jamison hopes that when proven and scaled-up that this approach can deliver clean fuel, energy, and economic benefits.
