Complex chemical behavior under harsh and hazardous conditions challenges safe and sustainable operations

The complexity of the chemistry, operating conditions and the sustainability requirements make the efficient and reliable operation of traditional power plants demanding. The safety and asset integrity requirements make nuclear power generation particularly challenging. Renewable energy sources like geothermal energy, energy storage and lithium battery, e-waste recycling are emerging technologies with immature processes that could benefit greatly from improved chemistry and process understanding.


Mitigate operational risk and enhance asset integrity and sustainability

The ability to characterize complex chemistry behavior under a wide range of operating conditions coupled with ability to understand the process dynamics and deep domain knowledge of applications unlocks significant business value.

Performed turnkey simulation of the flue gas process and accurately identified the fate of several components like mercury and boron to accelerate research productivity and reduce laboratory experiments.

Developed thermophysical models and parameterized chemistry data to deliver rigorous and accurate chemistry insights that enhanced design effectiveness for a nuclear operator.
