May 16, 2012 - Claremont, Calif. - Jennifer (Salem) Holmgren ’81 was one of five female scientists profiled this month in an article published in Ethanol Producer Magazine.
Entitled, “Groundbreakers: Women in Biofuels,” it features women who have achieved notable success while working in a traditionally male-dominated field.
As CEO of the clean energy technology firm LanzaTech, Holmgren shared the joys and challenges of her work. She also said she sees a growing trend of more women entering the clean technology field.
Holmgren has more than 20 years of experience in the energy sector, including work developing and commercializing fuel and chemical technologies. Prior to joining LanzaTech, she was vice president and general manager of the Renewable Energy and Chemicals business unit at UOP LLC, a Honeywell Company. She is the author or co-author of 50 U.S. patents and 20 scientific publications and, in 2003, received the Council for Chemical Research’s Malcolm E. Pruitt Award.
