Faculty

Steve Bertman
Professor,
Chemistry

Steve is an organic chemist interested in the role of organic compounds in the photochemistry of the lower atmosphere. He got involved in biofuels, specifically biodiesel, in 2004 after learning about the exhaust emissions improvements from biofuels and their potential to contribute to concrete action toward renewable fuels. Biofuels may not be a panacea of our energy needs, but they can contribute to more sustainable urban living and create opportunities for innovation and new industry.
