NETL to Showcase Innovative Research at Premier Chemical Engineering Forum

NETL experts will share their innovative research and development (R&D) work with scientists from around the world next week at the nation’s premier educational forum for chemical engineers.

Dozens of NETL personnel will converge in Orlando, Florida, Nov. 10-15 for the American Institute for Chemical Engineers’ (AIChE) 2019 Annual Meeting. Academic and industry experts will address a wide range of topics relevant to cutting-edge research, new technologies and emerging growth areas with more than 7,000 chemical engineers.

Work by NETL researchers, scientists and engineers will be featured among the technical programming offered by AIChE’s 22 divisions and forums and during 12 topical conferences targeting key research areas.

As the only national laboratory dedicated to fossil fuels, NETL will take center stage during the Advances in Fossil Energy R&D Topical Conference. Fourteen NETL researchers will participate, sharing their work via 16 scheduled presentations. Among others, topics to be addressed by NETL experts include:

  • Advanced Materials for Carbon Dioxide Capture for Power Generation
  • CO2 Use and Reuse
  • Advanced Combustor Concepts
  • Engineering Geologic Carbon Dioxide Storage Systems
  • Chemical Looping Processes
  • Design and Optimization of Environmentally Sustainable Advanced Fossil Energy Systems

NETL will also host an exhibit to share more information about the Lab’s vital work and highlight partnership opportunities. NETL researchers frequently collaborate with industry, academia and more to accelerate the development of innovative energy technology solutions. Additionally, the Lab’s Technology Transfer office uses a variety of partnership and licensing mechanisms to move Lab-developed innovations into the marketplace for maximum public benefit.

NETL strives to discover, integrate and mature technology solutions to enhance the nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations. Participation in events like AIChE’s annual meeting support that mission by elevating NETL’s successes, allowing the Lab’s technical experts to learn from the latest chemical engineering advances and facilitating critical partnerships.

AIChE is the world’s leading organization for chemical engineering professionals, with more than 60,000 members from more than 110 countries.
