HMEI Faculty Seminar: “Low-Cost Calcium-based Solid Sorbents for Carbon Capture”

Claire White, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, will present “Low-Cost Calcium-based Solid Sorbents for Carbon Capture” for our first talk in the fall 2021 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series.

White will discuss her research group’s efforts to create new solid sorbents for carbon capture utilization, and storage (CCUS) known as calcium-based layered double hydroxides. With the capture component of CCUS being the most expensive, the development of low-cost sorbent technologies could accelerate the adoption of CCUS around the world. White will outline the solution and electrochemical approaches being used by her group to make these high-purity solid sorbents and discuss their behavior in the context of existing capture materials.

Maria Garlock, professor of civil and environmental engineering, will lead a discussion and Q&A after the main presentation.

Register here to attend this talk in person (PUID holders only) or via Zoom livestream. The livestream is open to the public and the University community.
