Speaker: Joe Powell, Shell Chief Scientist - Chemical Engineering


The energy industry must deliver “more” and “cleaner” energy to meet global stakeholder needs for energy abundance and security of supply, while also addressing sustainability and responsible care for the planet including mitigating risks to climate.    A portfolio of options and solutions will be required, taking into account a diverse array of existing infrastructures, global resources, as well as economies and policies, giving rise to unprecedented rates of change in energy systems over the next century.    This seminar will present scenarios for addressing the challenge of sustainable future energy, and overview some of the technology developments underway to manage the energy transition.

Powell (PhD) is Fellow and former Director of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and since 2006 is Shell’s Chief Scientist - Chemical Engineering, where over 30+ years he has led R&D programs in new chemical processes, biofuels, enhanced oil recovery, and currently advises R&D for energy transition to a net-zero carbon economy.  Dr. Powell is co-inventor on more than 125 patent applications (60 granted), has received AIChE / ACS / R&D Magazine awards for Innovation, Service, and Practice, and is co-author of Sustainable Development in the Process Industries:  Cases and Impact (2010).  PhD: U.
