Carbon Efficient Chemical Engineering Systems

Realff, M., Georgia Institute of Technology

Life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of products and processes, and particularly carbon dioxide, are becoming a focus of many manufacturing organizations due to impending legislation, ability to trade carbon emissions, or in support of corporate sustainability goals. However, the process choices available within the organizational boundaries may have very small leverage over the system GHG footprint compared to those beyond it, such as choices of energy or raw material sources. In this session we seek research contributions that focus on technologies for cutting GHG emissions over various different system boundaries, and research on the development of tools that can support this complex set of tradeoffs.
