Description

Industrial laboratories have played a major role in innovation and commercialization of new technologies in energy and chemicals. This lecture will present case studies in technology development including enhanced oil recovery, chemical process developments with homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts and advanced separations, and in biofuels and new energies. The breadth of laboratory, pilot, and demonstration plant studies required to understand underlying fundamentals and derisk scale up, will be described. While computational modeling is showing increasing benefit in a priori prediction, experiments remain a centerpiece for discovery and characterization of plausible ranges of performance. The art of fit-for-purpose experimentation and measurement, augmented by appropriate modeling, remains a key skill for the industrial scientist and engineer.
