August 13-14, 2018
Add to Calendar

AIChE’s Center for Energy Initiatives (CEI) is hosting a consensus-building workshop on Aug. 13-14, 2018 in College Station, TX. This workshop brings together leaders in downstream natural gas conversion across industry, academia and government to discuss various perspectives on hurdles to technology implementation. Topics will focus on novel advances in natural gas conversion. The goal of each session will be to call out high potential leads that have emerged or may emerge in each area along with key enablers to facilitate continued progress.

Call for Abstracts is now open until June 13, 2018
