Richard Nemec discusses current work and objectives for the Sustainable Engineering Forum. Subhas Sikdar provides an overview of the Engineers Forum on Sustainability.
This presentation will focus on the primary failure mechanisms for lithium ion batteries, how those mechanisms are affected by material selection, and vehicle applications for batteries and their future development.
A lot has changed since the EPA Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule was issued in 2010. Under the rule, thousands of facilities were required to collect and report emissions data – or face potential criminal penalties.
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).
As Young Professional, you have already achieved success in completing the most challenging undergraduate program at most universities as you begin your career as chemical engineers. Now you are faced with the challenge of achieving success in a more challenging venue - the real world.
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.
Steve Wolf, founder of Science in the Movies and President of Special FX International, presents The Secret Science of Movie Stunts and Special Effects.
This webinar will discuss whether the skill set of chemists and chemical engineers is appropriate for this altered chemical industry.
The production of electrofuels requires the efficient transport of electrons from an electrochemical system into a biological system. We have approached this challenge by identifying natural chemical mediators that
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.
On September 16, 2011, the America Invents Act (AlA) was enacted, representing the first major overhaul of the U.S. Patent system in nearly 60 years.
Though hydraulic fracturing is far from new technology, shale gas development utilizing fracking currently faces mounting regulatory scrutiny at federal and state levels.
Enterprise-wide optimization (EWO) has become a major goal in the process industries due to the increasing pressures for remaining competitive in the global marketplace.
Providing insights into why bulk solids behave differently than liquids, this webinar introduces concepts regarding powder flow testing, bin/silo design, feeder integration, and mechanisms of powder segregation.
Get an overview some of the basic principles of chemical engineering for use by other engineers as well as other disciplines that must interact with chemical engineers.
