Jason D. Laumb is Director of Advanced Energy Systems Initiatives at the EERC, where he provides leadership on projects related to advanced energy systems and leads a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers working on advanced energy technologies from pollution control to new energy platforms. Specific areas of interest include renewable energy, CO2 capture, techno-economic modeling, extraction of critical materials, environmental control systems, supercritical CO2 power cycles, and advanced gasification technologies.
Prior to his current position at the EERC, he served as an Assistant Director of Advanced Energy Systems since 2019, Principal Engineer since 2008, Research Manager since 2001, and Research Engineer since 2001. Prior to joining the EERC, he was a Scanning Electron Microscopy Applications Specialist with Microbeam Technologies, Inc. Mr. Laumb received his M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering in 2000 and his B.S. degree in Chemistry in 1998, both from the University of North Dakota.
Mr. Laumb’s experience includes biomass and fossil fuel conversion for energy production, with an emphasis on ash effects on system performance; trace element emissions and control for fossil fuel combustion systems, with a particular emphasis on air pollution issues related to mercury and fine particulates; and design and fabrication of bench- and pilot-scale combustion and gasification equipment. He has coauthored numerous professional publications.
