Webinar II – January 18, 2018, 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM ET

The public is invited to attend a webinar which will explore the techno economic requirements (TEA) for utilizing waste streams, including carbon dioxide, methane, and biogas. 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.
