James Bunger

James Bunger holds a PhD in Fuels Engineering, and a BSc in Chemistry. He has served on the research faculty at the University of Utah where he mentored graduate students in unconventional fuels processing research. During a term as State Science Advisor for Utah he provided technical advice to the Governor and Legislature on natural resource development, environmental quality, and nuclear waste disposal. He was elected by international ballot as Chairman of the Petroleum Division of the American Chemical Society. He now consults in the field of unconventional oil resources, principally oil shale and oil sands. In this capacity he has recently served as Technical Director for the US-Estonia Cooperation Agreement on Oil Shale, and as technical staff support for the US DOE Office of Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserve. His thermodynamic analysis during this work revealed the soon-to-cross thermal efficiency trendlines for petroleum v unconventional fuels. His interests include efficient use of natural resources for economic well-being of mankind.
