(1 PDH)\n\nAbstra ct\n\nHow do human biases detrimentally affect climate solution decisions and what can be done to minimize those biases? Several climate solution in itiatives will be reviewed\, including the AIChE Climate Solutions Communi ty.\n\nAbout the Keynote Speaker\n\n\nTom Rehm spent his career in oil ref ining and petrochemicals\, retiring in 2009 from Saudi Aramco after workin g 12 years in Saudi Arabia.\nHe completed a B.S. degree in Chemical Engine ering at the University of Arkansas in 1972. At Northwestern University he completed his M.S. degree in 1982 and his doctorate in 1985.\nTom served on the STS Executive Committee from 2016 to 2017 as Human Resources Office r and as Chair in 2019. He was a director of the AIChE Safety and Health D ivision from 2017-2019. He is now involved in several initiatives on clima te solutions. Tom is the 2022-2023 past chair of the AIChE Climate Solutio ns Community. He co-founded Global Solutions and Outreach Programs\, which proposes using the Wicked Problem Approach to figure out the best nationa l\, regional\, and global action plans for resolving global warming and ad apting to climate change.\nHe holds memberships in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)\, the American Chemical Society (ACS)\, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)\, the American Nuclear Society (ANS) and the American Society for Testing and Materials ( ASTM). He is a member of the ASTM Climate and Community Subcommittee E50.0 7.\nTom’s escape valve is competitive pocket billiards.

We will focus on the transportation fuels market\, the most advanc ed in implementation\, compliance\, and the monetization of carbon measure ment. We will also discuss recent technical innovations and the delivery o f measurable low carbon intensity (CI) products.\n\nAbout the Speaker\n\n\ nMrs. Klavers has been working in the global energy industry for nearly 30 years and has deep experience in the entire energy chain including energy commodity markets\, refining operations and vehicle engine design\, petro chemicals and transportation fuels markets. Since moving to the U.S. in 19 96\, she has worked in energy market consulting\, first launching and buil ding the global consulting business at Hart Energy\, where she was instrum ental in building Hart’s rapid growth in global fuel quality\, biofuels and refining. At Argus\, Ms. Klavers built an Americas consulting business reflecting subject matters from crude\, gas\, LNG\, metals\, fertilizers\ , petrochemicals and biofuels and biomass. Prior to coming to the U.S.\, s he worked as a process engineer designing refineries for JGC in Japan and as an Oxygenated Fuels Specialist for Arco Chemicals (LyondellBasell) in t he United Kingdom. She holds a Master of Science in chemical engineering f rom Twente University in the Netherlands\, and Tokyo Institute of Technolo gy holds a patent for her methane coupling catalyst. Ms. Klavers actively participates in the National Petroleum Council\; she acts as a coach in Wo men of Energy\; and she is a board member for the Norwegian American Chamb er of Commerce as well as her local Rotary.\n \n DTEND;TZID="Central Standard Time":20230112T210000 DTSTAMP:20221227T191342Z DTSTART;TZID="Central Standard Time":20230112T173000 LAST-MODIFIED:20221227T191342Z LOCATION:The Bougainvilleas Event Venue & Catering\, 12126 Westheimer Rd\, Houston\, TX\, US\, 77077 PRIORITY:5 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY;LANGUAGE=en-us:AIChE STS January 2023 Dinner Meeting TRANSP:OPAQUE UID:040000008200E00074C5B7101A82E008000000003D9DE5FA161AD901000000000000000 0100000000219E8D77636CC41A64E32397C73700B X-ALT-DESC;FMTTYPE=text/html:
