DC-MUSE UNIVERSITY-INDUSTRY WEBINAR SERIES

An Industry-driven research center  on three convergent research pillars: electrochemical manufacturing, plasma manufacturing, and systems integration of electrified chemical processes with the grid.

About the DC-MUSE University-Industry Webinar Series: This webinar series brings together academic and industry stakeholders each month to discuss cutting-edge research in a particular area related to decarbonizing the chemical industry. Each webinar features a university researcher (providing an overview of their latest work), an industry expert (discussing relevant applications, challenges, and perspectives) and a moderated Q&A session to foster dialogue between attendees and speakers.

SEMINAR 2

We invite you to join the DC-MUSE University-Industry Webinar Series Series! 

​In this month's webinar, we will explore the topic of "Electrified Reactor Technologies for Low-Carbon Chemical Manufacturing" with the following speakers:

  • ​Academic Speaker: Dr. Mike Harold, Cullen Engineering Professor, Univ. of Houston
    Bio: Catalysis & reaction engineering expert. 185+ publications, 130+ invited talks. Research focus: Multi-functional reactors, reduced emissions. Recipient: AIChE R.H. Wilhelm Award (2023).
    Presentation: "Joule Heated Catalytic Wire Reactor for Syngas Production" - Explore the potential of using electricity to heat catalyst-coated wires, significantly enhancing syngas production from methane, making the manufacturing process cleaner and more efficient.

  • Industry Speaker: Dr. Ram R. Ratnakar, Senior Researcher in R&D, Shell
    Bio: Thermodynamics and Process Modeling SME. Editor: Upstream Oil & Gas Tech Journal. 60+ publications on modeling, reactive transport, electrification; 6 patents.
    Presentation: "Decarbonizing Hydrogen Supply Chain via Electrifying Endothermic Processes" - Learn about how electrified reactors integrate renewable energy to improve efficiency in chemical processes, focusing on cleaner hydrogen production and storage through ammonia decomposition.

  • Moderator: Miguel Modestino, New York University - Dr. Modestino will moderate the engaging Q&A session following the presentations.

SEMINAR 1

We invite you to join the DC-MUSE University-Industry Webinar Series Series! 

​In this month's webinar, we will explore the topic of "Pulsing Electrochemistry - Unlocking New Frontiers in Reactor Performance" with the following speakers:

  • ​Academic Speaker: Miguel Modestino, New York University - Dr. Modestino will present on how pulsed electrosynthesis can enhance electrochemical manufacturing by optimizing kinetic and transport processes at electrode/electrolyte interfaces. His talk will cover the impact of pulsed electrosynthesis on production of adiponitrile (a precursor to nylon 6,6) alongside its applications in CO2 electrocatalytic reduction and electrochemical energy storage/conversion.

  • Industry Speaker: Timothy Hall, Research Director at Faraday Technology Inc. - Mr. Hall will discuss industrial applications and perspectives related to pulse and pulse reverse electrochemical processing techniques.

  • Moderator: Daniel Esposito, Columbia University - Dr. Esposito will moderate the Q&A session following the presentations.
