Michael (Mike) Talmadge has contributed to safe fuel production operations, technology development, process modeling and analysis for twenty-three years. Mike supports the development of renewable fuel and chemical technologies at NREL through process modeling and techno–economic analysis of biomass conversion pathways. He has contributed strategies for incorporating biomass–derived intermediates and finished fuel blendstocks into existing petroleum refining infrastructure through collaborative efforts with industry and projects at NREL. Mike has also led initial development of a techno-economic analysis platform for assessing and comparing water treatment and reuse technologies in the National Alliance for Water Innovation. Outside of the NREL years, Mike spent over a decade in refinery fuels production and process technology development with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company, Valero Energy Corporation, Seeq Corporation, and Johnson Matthey.
