Join the University of Udine and the Aist European Member Chapter for the Aist John F. Elliott lecturer
Lecture by Professor Donald R. Sadoway on “Electrochemical Pathways Toward Sustainable Metals Extraction”, the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. Sadoway is an minent academic professor and a keynote speaker: his TED Talk “The missing link to renewable energy” has been viewed more than 1,850,000 times; in 2012 he was named by the Time as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World”; he’s the author of more than 160 scientific papers, holder of 25 U.S. patents and co-founder of 2 companies.
The overarching theme of his work is electrochemistry in nonaqueous media focused on these technological challenges: liquid metal batteries (LMB) for stationary storage applications, solid-polymer-electrolyte batteries for portable power applications and environmentally sound electrochemical extraction of metals (Molten Oxyde Electrolysis, MOE).
Sadoway will explain how MOE can be used for metals production, representing an environmentally sound alternative to today’s carbon-intensive thermochemical metals reduction processes.
