Course Description

Introduction to various CO2 utilization and conversion technologies that can reduce the overall  carbon footprint of commodity chemicals and materials. Fundamentals of thermodynamics, fluid  mechanics, reaction kinetics, catalysis and reactor design will be discussed using technological  examples such as enhanced oil recovery, shale fracking, photo and electrochemical conversion of  CO2 to chemical and fuels, and formation of solid carbonates and their various uses. Life cycle  analyses of potential products and utilization schemes will also be discussed, as well as the use of  renewable energy for CO2 conversion.
