Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is a promising pathway to decarbonize fossil-based power and industrial sectors and is a bridging technology for a sustainable transition to a net-zero emission energy future. This talk aims to provide an overview of design and optimization of CCUS systems. I will also attempt to give a brief perspective on emerging interests in process systems engineering research (e.g., systems integration, multiscale modeling, strategic planning, and optimization under uncertainty). The purpose is not to cover all aspects of PSE research for CCUS but rather to foster discussion by presenting some plausible future directions and ideas.

Dr. Faruque Hasan is currently an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Kim and Phillip McDivitt Faculty Fellow at Texas A&M University. He also serves as an Assistant Director of Decarbonization for the Texas A&M Energy Institute. He received a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from National University of Singapore in 2010 and completed a postdoctoral training at Princeton University before joining Texas A&M University in 2014. His research group develops theoretical, computational and algorithmic methods, tools and techniques for the design, analysis and optimization of multiscale process systems with applications to decarbonization of the energy and industrial sectors. Specific technological interests include carbon capture and utilization, sustainable hydrogen economy, methane mitigation and removal, and resilient supply chains. He is the recipient of a CAREER Award from the U.S. National Science Foundation, an Outstanding Young Researcher Award from the Computing & Systems Technology Division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and the New Doctoral Investigator award from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund.
