Webinar I – December 5, 2017, 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

The public is invited to attend a webinar which will explore life cycle and economic analysis (LCA) on waste streams, including carbon dioxide and methane. This activity is part of the study Developing a Research Agenda for Utilization of Gaseous Carbon Waste Streams, in which the committee will conduct a comprehensive assessment of future research and development (R&D) needs for utilization of carbon dioxide, methane, and biogas. In particular, the study will focus on R&D needed for commercialization of technologies that can transform carbon waste streams into useful products and chemicals.
