Jordan Klinger, Ph.D.

Biomass Feedstock Conversion Postdoctoral Research Associate

Research Areas:
Biomass feedstock conversion

Biography:
Dr. Jordan Klinger is a postdoctoral researcher in Idaho National Laboratory’s Energy Environment Science & Technology directorate. He is involved in biomass feedstock conversion research, designing and conducting experiments to determine relationships between key feedstock attributes and thermochemical conversion performance. He studied at Michigan Technological University, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s in chemical engineering and his doctorate in mechanical engineering. Before coming to INL in 2016 he was chief operating officer of Treamin Energy, Inc., engaged in producing economically viable alternatives to fossil coal through torrefaction of waste biomass feedstock. In 2016 he also began an adjunct assistant professorship at Michigan Tech where he helps guide and advise graduate students. In 2013 he completed the NSF Innovation Corps program, in which he was named Most Promising Commercialization Entrepreneurial Lead. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
