Henrique Amorim

Time and Time Again

Henrique Amorim graduated from Ohio State with a master’s in botany in 1970. He returned to Ohio State in 1974 as a visiting scholar after receiving his PhD in agronomy from the University of São Paulo (USP). In 1977, Amorim started what would be a very successful business in alcohol fermentation, Fermentec, in the city of Piracicaba. Most recently, he visited Ohio State in 2018 for the launch of the book Pathways to Collaboration, in which his experience was featured.
