This presentation will provide an overview of a process to produce algae bio-crude from algae grown in open ponds using non-potable water and non-arable soil.
Members affiliated with the Center for Energy Initiatives periodically conduct webinars to address critical Energy topics as part of the AIChE Webinar Series. Explore Energy related Webinars below or View all on AIChE ChemE On Demand
The presentation provides some general background on biofuels and on the use of algae as a biomass source for making liquid fuels. The presentation focuses on R&D efforts related to processing algae in its wet state, which eliminates an energy intensive drying step.
What do you need to know about mercury, HCI, metals and other toxics control? This webinar will address technical and permitting issues from two perspectives: what is required (by Nick Hutson of USEPA) and what strategies could you adopt (by Bob Fraser of ERM).
This last session of the first CSTP webinar series features 3 presentations: Danny Reible’s overview on AIChE’s Society for Water Solutions, Veronika Rabl’s discussion on Sustainability Metrics for Energy Systems, and Beth Belof’s introduction to ICOSSE and the ICOSSE label.
In this webinar, presenters describe and examine potential LNG (liquefied natural gas) hazards and risk-reduction methods for the LNG value chain ― production and consumption.
Erin Chan, project manager for IfS, discusses the Youth Council’s involvement in the EPA P3 Program and other activities. Darlene Schuster, executive director for IfS, provides an overview to the Institute for Sustainability.
This webinar provides background on how water is used for drilling and hydraulic fracturing and includes a review of hydraulic fracturing fluid composition and flowback and produced water quantity and composition.
Richard Nemec discusses current work and objectives for the Sustainable Engineering Forum. Subhas Sikdar provides an overview of the Engineers Forum on Sustainability.
Dale Keairns provides an overview on the Center for Energy Initiatives and the Founder Societies Technologies for Carbon Management project (with ASCE, SPE, TMS, AIST, ASME, IEEE, ASME, AIME, and SME).
Learn about the critical economic, environmental and social issues that will impact a biofuels project along with the technical programs that could enhance a particular project.
Energy storage technologies have recently been gaining attention, spurred on by the shift toward sustainable energy. This webinar aims to explore a sampling of energy storage research.
Though hydraulic fracturing is far from new technology, shale gas development utilizing fracking currently faces mounting regulatory scrutiny at federal and state levels.
Get an overview of research activities in the area of nanostructured carbon materials with a focus on supercapacitors and other energy-related applications.
Algae provides one solution to help the US reduce its dependence on foreign oil and create new green jobs. Barry Cohen and Will Thurmond will discuss both the technology and the commercial framework for the New Green Crude.
Development of shale gas and oil resources in the United States has resulted in significant byproduct production of natural gas liquids, which has reversed the declining trend in US NGL production experienced at the turn of the century.
AIChE and the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) join forces in this 90-minute panel discussion about how EPA’s Boiler MACT rules will change business operations.
