Join us this month as Professor David Sinton (MechE 9T8, MechE PhD 0T3) discusses revolutionary methods in carbon management. With global CO2 emissions over 30 billion tons per year, managing carbon is a defining challenge of our time. Professor Sinton outlines the scale of the challenge and solutions under development at U of T. Canada is already a leader in the utilization of CO2 in current energy processes. U of T researchers are leading the development of technology to upgrade CO2 into valuable chemicals and feedstocks. These approaches will be assessed in terms of the essential metrics of efficiency, cost and scale.
David Sinton is a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Microfluidics and Energy at the University of Toronto. He is currently an NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellow, before which he was the Associate Chair of Research in Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, as well as the Interim Vice-Dean of research in the Faculty of Applied Science. He is a co-founder and the CTO of Interface Fluidics Ltd, a start-up focused on improving the environmental and economic performance of current energy operations. Prior to joining the University of Toronto, Dr. Sinton was an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair at the University of Victoria, and a Visiting Associate Professor at Cornell University.
