Amanda Simson

Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering


Masters student Dave Chun (ChE'21) and undergraduate students Yu Xu (ChE'21) and Delphine Troast (ChE'21) did presentations at the AIChE 2020 Annual (Virtual Meeting) in sessions "Environmental Issues involving Biochar" and "Catalysis and Reaction Engineering." The abstract for Dave and Yu's oral presentation can be found here: The impact of CO2 in Pyrolysis and Ultimate Reactivity of Biochars Made from Food Wastes and Delphine's abstract for her poster presentation can be found here: The Catalytic Effect of Ash Content on CO2 Gasification of Biochars.

Derek Ni (ChE '18) and Peter Zhao (ChE '20) did oral presentations at the AIChE 2019 Annual Meeting. Derek's abstract can be found here: Kinetic Studies on the CO2 Gasification of Biochar for Use with SOFCs As a Bioenergy with Carbon     Capture and Sequestration (BECCS) Process and Peter's extended abstract can be found here: Miscanthus Sacchariflorus Bioenergy Production
