The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the inability of national supply chains to quickly shift production and reconfigure their logistics networks to meet customer demand surges during major disruptive events. The desperate scramble for items such as ventilators, face masks and even toilet paper won’t soon be forgotten, but the recent baby formula shortage points to a […]
Their novel monitoring system can rapidly monitor carbon dioxide sequestered underground. Capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) deep underground can help combat climate change, but long-term monitoring of the stored CO2 within a geological storage site is difficult using current physics-based methods. Texas A&M University researchers proved that unsupervised machine-learning methods could analyze the sensor-gathered […]
Energy Institute Developing DOE RAPID-Funded Education Program on Computer-Aided Process Intensification
As a part of an award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment (RAPID) Institute, which is overseen by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Texas A&M Energy Institute is developing a comprehensive educational and workforce development training program specifically focusing on computer-aided and process systems engineering-based strategies for modeling and simulation of process intensification systems.
Dr. Faruque Hasan, assistant professor and Kim Tompkins McDivitt ’88 and Phillip McDivitt ’87 Faculty Fellow in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering, has received the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award.
On November 6, 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy announced it would provide $128 million in funding for 75 projects from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2019 (SETO FY2019) funding program.
