Energy Innovation Series Webinar: Low-carbon Fuels

WHEN
January 14 / 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
01/14/21 10:00 AM 01/14/21 12:00 PM America/New_York Energy Innovation Series Webinar: Low-carbon Fuels United States

This spring, MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and Energy Initiative (MITEI) continue the energy innovation webinar series focused on the energy transition. The series engages leading researchers from across MIT and industry executives on topics including low-carbon fuels, decarbonization of buildings, and more. Industrial collaboration has long been a hallmark of MIT’s approach to problem solving. Please join us to hear what we are doing together with our industrial partners to address the climate change challenges.

Though we’ve made progress in decarbonizing electricity generation, there is still a dire need to further reduce the carbon footprint of other sectors, including transportation, industry, and buildings. In this webinar, Karine Boissy-Rousseau, president of Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy U.S. LLC, Adam Bratis, associate lab director of Bio Energy Sciences and Technology at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Dharik S. Mallapragada, research scientist at the MIT Energy Initiative, and Kristala L. Jones Prather, Arthur D. Little Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT, will discuss the role that low-carbon fuels, such as hydrogen and biofuels, can play in getting us to net-zero emissions across all of these sectors—an increasingly urgent cornerstone of any effective climate change mitigation strategy.
