Clayton Wheeler is an assistant professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Maine. Wheeler is investigating a wood to fuel pathway using a process called thermal deoxygenation (TDO).
UMaine's TDO process is wholly unique to the university and appears to be the most promising revolution in drop-in biofuel research nationwide.
