Innovation in Electrochemical Technology: from Batteries to Metals Extraction
Join us for dinner at EVOO Restaurant
in Cambridge for a enlightening talk by Prof. Donald R. Sadoway, John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry and renown for his 3.091 lectures. He will be speaking on how innovations in electrochemical technology pave the way to sustainability. Examples of electrochemistry will be shown as solutions to the problem of intermittency in the generation of electricity by renewable sources such as wind or photovoltaic solar and to the problem of the carbon intensity associated with metals production. We are recording the lecture and will post a link to the video near the end of March.
