Microfluidics to Present ‘From Batteries to Biofuels’ Webinar
Presentation to Demonstrate How Nanotech Processing Can Create More Efficient and Effective Alternative Fuels
Newton, MA, April 25, 2012 – Microfluidics the international leader in high shear liquid processing, today announced that it would be presenting a webinar entitled From Batteries to Biofuels - Advancements in Equipment Solutions for Green Energy Production on Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM EDT.
Dr. Mimi Panagiotou, Chief Technology Officer for IDEX MPT Group, will make the webinar presentation. Dr. Panagiotou heads the development of Microfluidics Reaction Technology (MRT), an award-winning process intensification technology to manufacture nanosuspensions from the “bottom up”. She is also the co-inventor of two patents and the co-author of over 60 papers.
“Innovative energy companies use nanotechnology to enhance, batteries, fuel cells, catalytic reactions and photovoltaics. They also use it to convert cellulose into a high value/performance material and improve performance of fluids used to heat transfer.” said Dr. Panagiotou. Microfluidics’ technology
can help alternative energy developers to produce Nano-cellulose, reduce catalyst amounts in fuel cells, enhance the heat transfer characteristics of fluids and achieve guaranteed scale-up from lab to production.”
Webinar attendees will learn how Microfluidics technology can optimize energy applications in the areas of:
Dr. Panagiotou will answer questions after the presentation.
