The interdisciplinary team of Ierapetritou, Ramachandran, Zhang, Chundawat, Tsilomelekis, Singh and Hausner at the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering department at Rutgers University, receives $1.8Million to develop and monitor continuous upstream bioprocess

May 29, 2018

George Tsilomelekis, of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, was awarded $500,000 for research on developing more energy-efficient production of propylene, which is used in creating many materials. The research will develop novel catalysts with dual functionality for converting propane to propylene. Tsilomelekis’ uses spectroscopic techniques under real reaction conditions in seeking new paths to efficient, renewable and alternative energy sources. The award also will fund outreach for younger students through development of a freeware computer game that teaches principles of molecular symmetry and spectroscopy.

Thanasis Kritikos and Thu D. Nguyen join our group!
