Prof Jenny Jones is a Professor in Sustainable Energy at the University of Leeds and a previous EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow. She is has attracted over £10 million of research funding to Leeds during her career to date and has led several large projects including the RCUK Centre for Doctoral Training in Bioenergy, and the SUPERGEN Bioenergy Consortium 2004-2011, which had a total budget of £9.3 million. Her research career has focused initially in the area of clean coal, and more recently on the role and fate of metals, particularly alkali metals, during the thermal conversion of biomass. She has published her research in over 170 journal papers and is listed amongst the top 1% of cited researchers in the world (Thomson Reuters highly cited researchers (Clarivate), 2015, 2016, 2017). Her experience will be particularly valuable to critically-assess the practicality of different decarbonisation options in the steel industry, from the point of view of the way in which biomass and bio-carbon structures and composition influence the viability. Experimental data will help fill-in gaps in data where appropriate.
