Air Quality & Industrial Gases
Rapid industrialization in some of the largest countries in the world has created a massive air quality problem that promises to stifle further growth. Technologies are needed to more intelligently quantify the scope of the problem and help mitigate it. There are numerous industrially-relevant gas separation processes that require huge amounts of energy (e.g. cryoseparation). New materials and membrane processes have the potential to dramatically lower energy costs and meaningfully impact global CO2 emissions.
