Jason Trembly joined Ohio University in 2011 after serving as team leader for syngas and CO2 conversion at RTI International’s Energy Technology Unit.

A graduate faculty member in the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Trembly currently directs Russ College’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment.

Trembly’s research focuses on process intensification to increase sustainability in the energy and environmental spaces. His research group utilizes the combination of process modeling with material/process development to effectively address key regional, state and national needs. Specific areas of interest include syngas conversion, natural gas/NGLs conversion, wastewater treatment, nutrient recovery, high temperature electrochemical systems and techno-economic studies.

Trembly has been a principal investigator for more than $12 million in sponsored research, primarily for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and has a citation index of more than 1,000 total citations. He completed his graduate studies as an ORISE Fellow at the U.S. DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.
