Pro. Russell Howe's visit
2018.11.12-2018.11.17, Prof. Russell Howe visited us and gave a lecture name “Catalytic Chemistry of Methanol to Hydrocarbons Investigated with Vibrational Spectroscopies”. We have made a detailed plan for collaborative research in the next three years. This visit is part of Royal Society International Collaboration Project between Aberdeen University (Prof. Russell Howe) and Tianjin University (Prof. Xinbin Ma) on “Efficient Production of Transport Fuels and Chemicals from Methanol and Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide”. This project aim to address two major challenges for China in the areas of energy and the environment: the rapidly rising demand for transport fuels from non-petroleum sources, and the need to reduce air pollution by converting the country's extensive coal reserves to cleaner burning fuels and chemical feedstocks.
