CCL graduate Dr. Swanand Tupsakhare starts work at Southern Research

CCL recent graduate Swanand Tupsakhare embarks on new career leveraging some of the skills acquired during his time with the CCL team. Swanand joined Southern Research’s Energy and Environment division in Durham, NC as a Post Doc Chemical Engineer in January 2018. Swanand’s work will focus on the separation of impurities and by-products in the process involving the conversion of Biomass to Acrylonitrile​, funded by DOE-BETO. ​He is also involved in the research to develop carbon utilization technologies at Southern Research. Congratulations Swanand!

Dr. Marco Castaldi, Dr. Simona Ciuta, and Demetra Tsiamis published a book titled “Gasification of Waste Materials”

Dr. Marco J Castaldi, Dr. Simona Ciuta, and Demetra Tsiamis published a book on waste gasification and pyrolysis. This textbook explores the most recent gasification technologies developed worldwide to convert solid wastes to energy, synthesis gas, and chemical products. The authors examine the thermodynamic aspects, reaction mechanisms, and kinetic constraints of using various types of wastes as feedstock.

The book is recommended for engineering researchers, graduate students, industry professionals, municipal engineers, and decision makers when planning, designing, and deploying waste to energy projects.
