CSERC Seminar Series: Applications of Adsorption Processes for Sustainable Energy Sources
October 10, 2017 at 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
|Location:||2017 Dunton Tower|
Dr. F. Handan Tezel
Professor, Department of Chemical and
Biological Engineering, University of Ottawa
This talk will summarize 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 will be discussed. Examples will include 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.
5:45-6:00 Meet the speaker
Jointly presented by the Carleton Sustainable Energy Research Centre and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
