Dr. Chunshan Song attended the 5th U.S.-China Symposium on CO2 Emission Control Science and Technology, which was co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and held in Hangzhou, China, during June 4-7, 2016. Song was invited by DOE to give a presentation on DOE NETL-supported CO2 capture and conversion research at Penn State. He presented an invited lecture titled “Solid Molecular Basket Sorbent with High Capacity for Selective CO2 Capture and Catalytic Conversion.” Song also took this opportunity to introduce UCFER at this meeting to the researchers in the U.S. and China. He presented one slide as an outline of UCFER at this meeting. Several U.S. DOE officials attended this meeting including:

  • Mr. David Mohler, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Clean Coal and Carbon Management
  • Mr. Scott Smouse, Senior Advisor to Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Fossil Energy
  • Dr. Samuel Tam, China Chief Representative, Office of Fossil Energy

The meeting was co-organized by Zhejiang University in China and the University of Wyoming in the U.S. The meeting participants also toured the laboratories on energy and CO2 research at Zhejiang University.
