Are you involved in CO2 removal? Are you focused—like many engineers—on the use of solvents? There’s another method of CO2 removal using highly selective membranes. Take this webinar to learn more.

Join Carnegie Mellon research engineer Grigorios Panagakos and COMSOL technology specialist Hamid Ghanbari as they demonstrate the use of simulation in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to optimize the geometry and operating conditions of a hollow fiber module for carbon capture. This live webinar takes place on Thursday, August 30, 2018, from 2:00-3:00 pm ET.

In this 60-minute sponsored webinar, the live demo will involve building a single-fiber, 2D axisymmetric and multiphysics model that is capable of providing accurate velocity and concentration profiles. You’ll learn how to use such a model with state-of-the-art description of the complex transport phenomena taking place for optimizing the geometrical features and operating conditions of a hollow fiber module. This webinar will also demonstrate how to compare calculations with experimental results for calibration and validation. Get your questions answered during a Q & A session at the end of the webinar.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Carbon capture technologies—an indispensable pillar for revolutionizing fossil fuel usage
  • The use of highly selective membranes for CO2 removal
  • Comparing calculations for calibration and validation purposes
