Firing up a clean chemistry revolution

Plasma technology could help the petrochemical industry transition to an electrified, decarbonized future. The shift to a future marked by carbon-free renewable energy sources is being explored by KAUST researcher Min Suk Cha as societies seek to end our reliance on fire. Cha and his team, including postdoc Ramses Snoeckx are researching electrically generated plasmas as the future of chemical synthesis and manufacturing to replace combustion-driven processes.

Advanced modes of combustion that are controlled by plasma discharges could become key components of the circular carbon economy. Humans have a very long history with fire and, over the past two centuries, with more controlled forms of combustion. Our evolving mastery of combustion is marked by many technological leaps, but now, the overarching aim of the research field is to find ways to mitigate combustions main drawbackthe carbon dioxide it generates.

Dr. Xiaoyuan Zhang Wins Bernard Lewis Fellowship

CCRC Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Xiaoyuan Zhang received the 2020 Bernard Lewis Fellowship. Dr. Zhang joined the Combustion and Pyrolysis Chemistry (CPC) Group under the supervision of Prof. Mani Sarathy as a postdoctoral researcher at the beginning of 2020. In 2019, she earned her Ph.D. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. Her current research interests are combustion reaction kinetics of fossil fuels and biofuels, and model development for Surrogate and Real Fuels. Read more >>> Read more
