Adsorption Applications for Sustainable Future

Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 8:30 AM
250 A Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
According to Wikipedia, Sustainability is the capacity to endure. It is the potential for long-term maintenance of wellbeing, which in turn depends on the wellbeing of the natural world and the responsible use of natural resources. Adsorption processes have many important applications for sustainable energies, clean air, clean water, and safe food supplies. This session presents the most recent advances in this area.
