Don Stevens - One of Washington's Top Innovators

November 2008
Don Stevens was named one of the state's top 25 innovators by the Seattle-based magazine, Seattle Business Monthly. The magazine selected the 25 emerging talents among its Top 25 Innovators and Entrepreneurs for 2007. Don, a Senior Project Manager and chemist, is devising ways to convert cellulose-based byproducts—like poplar trees and corn stalks—into biomass-based fuel and products. Don is applying his more than 25 years of experience to lead research and development projects for the production of power, fuels, and chemicals from biomass. These projects are aimed at developing technologies that enable value-added products to be produced using biomass rather than petroleum.
