Energy Talks Online: Carbon Dioxide Capture

7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Description

Carbon Dioxide Capture:

Mitigating Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Power generation and manufacturing processes are the major contributors to CO2 emissions. Currently, several approaches are being considered to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions including improving process efficiencies, fuel switching and renewable energy sources. Carbon capture and storage/utilization, where CO2 from industrial emissions and intermediate streams is concentrated and either stored or utilized, is considered as a viable and scalable mitigation option. This talk will provide an introduction to this technology, address key challenges and developments, and discuss the negative-emission technology of direct air capture that aims to concentrate CO2 from the atmosphere.

Arvind Rajendran is a professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Alberta, with a research group focusing on gas separations with applications in CO2 capture, oxygen purification and helium separation. He received his Doctorate degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich, before starting his academic career at Nanyang Technological University Singapore, and moving to the University of Alberta in 2012. He serves as an associate editor of the Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering and as an area editor of Adsorption - the journal of the international adsorption society. He has co-authored over 75 papers/book chapters and (co-) advised 27 graduate students (MSc+PhD).

This webinar is offered in partnership with Future Energy Systems.
