Bryan Bals, AFEX Process Engineer

Bryan joined MBI in 2011, after receiving extensive training in chemical engineering applications related to biomass processing, and in the techno-economic analysis and modeling of biomass supply and processing systems.

Prior to joining MBI, Bryan was a post-doctoral scientist in the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (a national biofuels research initiative) under the guidance of Professor Bruce Dale, a leading biomass researcher at MSU. Bryan has applied engineering analysis to AFEX technology, and has performed extensive techno-economic modeling of AFEX depots in different configurations and geographies. Bryan is also well versed in biomass applications as a fermentation feedstock, cattle feed ingredients, and in formulating polymeric materials. He has published extensively on the above topics.

Bryan received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University.
