Phillip Savage has been on the Michigan faculty since 1986. He earned a B.S. from Penn State and M.Ch.E. and PhD degrees from the University of Delaware. Phil’s research and teaching focus on the rates, mechanisms, and engineering of chemical reactions that move us toward a more environmentally sustainable society.
Current research projects deal with reactions that can be used for hydrogen production from biomass and for liquid transportation fuel production from algae. His research group uses experiments, modeling, and simulation to explore different reaction systems. His teaching focuses on chemical reaction engineering and environmental sustainability. Phil is an Associate Editor for Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research and a Fellow of the AIChE and ACS. He received the 2009 Michigan Governor’s Award for Green Chemistry.
