Terry has a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from The Ohio State University under the direction of Prof Devon Meek.  He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  He has been involved in the renewable fuels and chemicals area for much of his 40 years in R&D.  Terry invented the Oxygen Transport Membrane process for the in situ separation of oxygen from air for the production of syngas from natural gas, and led a multinational industrial technical team to develop and scale up the process.  He has authored 20 refereed publications and has been granted more than 60 US Patents as well as numerous international patents. He has experience in biomass upgrading, natural gas conversion, solid oxide fuel cells, algae production, and chemicals process development.  Terry worked at BP for over twenty years.  Later, as interim CTO of Anellotech, Terry directed R&D and developed intellectual property for Anellotech’s proprietary biomass to aromatics process. Then as Chief Scientist at Velocys, he led the team developing microchannel processes for natural gas upgrading and chemicals production, including catalyst development, corrosion resistance, and metals coating.
