At this lecture, Professor David Sholl will speak about the processes used to separate chemicals into pure forms, which accounts for an astonishing 10-15% of all energy used by our global society. The products of these processes underpin all aspects of modern life. This lecture will explain where this energy goes and describe the approaches being developed that can radically reduce the energy associated with chemical separations.
David Sholl is the John F. Brock III School Chair of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech. His research uses computational materials modeling to accelerate development of new materials for energy-related applications, including generation and storage of gaseous and liquid fuels and chemicals and carbon dioxide mitigation. He has published over 300 papers and is a Senior Editor of the ACS journal Langmuir.
