Dr. Shulin Chen Receives Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award

WSU Showcase  |  March 25, 2022

Shulin Chen’s technological innovations have made industrial processes more sustainable. Chen develops bioconversion processes and systems for the production of biofuel, bioenergy, and bioproducts. Using anaerobic digestion systems, his research team invented a process to convert manure and other dairy-industry waste to bioenergy. The systems reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They also recover nutrients from wastewater, alleviating concerns about surface and groundwater pollution. Six anaerobic digestion systems are now functioning throughout Washington.

WSU established the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award in 2018. Dr. Chen is the 2022 recipient of the award. <a … » More …
