This talk summarized the research carried out by Dr. Tezel and her group at University of Ottawa in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. After a brief introduction to adsorption processes, their application in carbon capture and recycle, renewable fuels production, and thermal energy storage for solar and waste heat applications were discussed. Examples included removal of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and its conversion to synthetic fuel, production of natural gas from landfill gas from garbage, production of bio-alcohols from agricultural waste (to be blended into gasoline) and using adsorption for thermal energy storage.
