CHemCatBio Webinar

Join the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO) Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy Consortium (ChemCatBio) on January 24, 2024, 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. ET, for a webinar titled, Addressing Rigor and Reproducibility (R&R) in Thermal, Heterogenous Catalysis.

In this webinar, panelists will discuss the current state of the field, why the topic is important for industry and bioenergy applications, outcomes from their 2022 National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop, and planned future activities researchers are undertaking to help the catalysis community address R&R issues. The webinar will end with a Q&A session.

Guest panelists include:

  • Dr. John West, Johnson Matthey
  • Dr. Neil Schweitzer, Northwestern University
  • Dr. Rajamani Gounder, Purdue University
  • Dr. Robert Rioux, Pennsylvania State University
