Director of the The EMS Energy Institute at Penn State, Chunshan Song (Energy & Mineral Engineering, Chemical Engineering) will be talking at next week’s Millennium Café. Capturing CO2 and converting it into chemicals, materials, and fuels using renewable energy, is an important path for sustainable development. With recent advances in materials, CO2 can now be captured from various sources using selective and more energy-efficient “CO2 molecular basket sorbent” (MBS) which consists of nano-porous materials and functional polymers. Catalytic conversion of CO2 can now be advanced by using bimetallic catalysts to selectively produce carbon-based chemicals and fuels.

The Millennium Café is held every Tuesday @ 10:00 in the 3rd floor Café Commons of the Millennium Science Complex.
