Conference Dates: Thursday, December 12 - Friday, December 13, 2019
RAPID Session: Thursday, December 12, 1:30PM-3:30PM
The AIChE Center for Energy Initiatives, in collaboration with other entities, is hosting a 2 day symposium to focus on solar energy innovation, challenges and opportunities for engineers and other stakeholders.
RAPID will hold a short interactive session alongside this conference focused on the application of modular and chemical process intensification for producing chemicals and fuels from solar energy as a storage mechanism. During this session, a Ignasi Palou-Rivera, RAPID’s technology platform director, will present an overview of the RAPID manufacturing institute and the institute’s roadmap, as well as relevant projects currently funded through RAPID. This will be followed by small group breakouts where participants will brainstorm how modular and process intensification technologies could be applied to solar-based production of chemicals and fuels. There will be plenty of time to ask questions about RAPID and to provide your perspective on where modular and chemical process intensification could have significant impact.
