Materials for Carbon Dioxide Mitigation Technology offers expert insight and experience from recognized authorities in advanced material development in carbon mitigation technology and constitutes a comprehensive guide to the selection and design of a wide range of solvent/sorbent/catalyst used by scientists globally. It appeals to chemical scientists, material scientists and engineers, energy researchers, and environmental scientists from academia, industry, and government in their research directed toward greener, more efficient carbon mitigation processes.
- Emphasizes material development for carbon mitigation technologies rather than regulations
- Provides a fundamental understanding of the underpinning science as well as technological approaches to implement carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies
- Introduces the driving force behind novel materials, their performance and applications for carbon dioxide mitigation
- Contains figures, tables and an abundance of examples clearly explaining the development, characterization and evaluation of novel carbon mitigation materials
- Includes hundreds of citations drawing on the most recent published works on the subject
- Provides a wealth of real-world examples, illustrating how to bridge nano-scale materials to bulk carbon mitigation properties

Dr. Bryan Morreale is the acting Materials Science and Engineering focus area lead within the Office of Research and Development at the Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). Dr. Morreale leads activities across a diverse research portfolio related to both structural and functional materials for advanced energy conversion applications, specifically focused on advanced gasification, advanced combustion, and minimizing environmental impacts. Dr. Morreale's tenure at NETL began in 1999, where he supports the NETL Office of Research and Development as well as the NETL Strategic Center for Coal. Connections he has made over his twelve years at NETL will ease coordination of this book, because he can rely on contributors among those he knows in the industry worldwide.
Dr. Fan Shi, a researcher at the Department of Energy's (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), leads NETL-RUA projects on the novel membrane reactor for fuel conversion from coal/biomass and on CO2 capture technology. Shi authored and co-authored more than 15 technical papers on renewable energy production, and novel reactor design. He has chaired technical sessions focusing on reaction/reactor designs, gas to liquid (GTL) technologies, and modelling of composites for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) annual meetings. Shi has academic and industrial contacts worldwide in the reaction and process engineering arena, which will ease his coordination of a publication on this topic. He holds a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and is a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS), AIChE, and North American Catalysis Society
