Process Design in Energy and Sustainability: towards a net zero carbon economy


Yenkie, K., Rowan University


Li, C., Purdue University

This session includes process and systems design aspects in the broader domains of energy, economics and the environment driven by the societal need to reduce net emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere. Energy topics include, but are not limited to: renewables, alternative fuels, biofuels, biorefineries, polygeneration, power systems, synthetic fuels and carbon capture. Submissions may also discuss the integration of energy system design with other technological considerations such as optimization, control, energy storage, and sustainability including co2 capture and use. Papers that promote innovative solutions that use novel and unconventional sources of energy (e.g. renewable naturual gas) and feedstocks (e.g. biomass and CO2) as well as better utilization of various forms of resources within chemical processing are encouraged. Traditional fossil energy systems design must indicate how the system reduces carbon usage relative to the existing system and can support net zero carbon systems.
