The implementation of hybrid vehicles is limited by technical development of rechargeable batteries. There are several battery versions in different levels of research and IBM is currently working on Lithium-Air; which may have 10 times the energy density of Lithium-ion batteries. The Lithium-Air battery does not come without risks and requires highly flammable Lithium metal to react with Oxygen in the air. Consequently it becomes necessary to develop sophisticated nanostructures that will function to keep water out of the battery and let Oxygen in.
The Northern California Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers invites you to join us at our 49th annual symposium for a half day of presentations and exhibits featuring the latest technology development and products and services in the Biotechnology field. Attendees will hear from scientists and chemical engineers about novel biomaterials, facility design, process control strategies and more as we bring together people from Bay Area industries such as Biotechnology, Refineries, Biofuels, Biomaterials, and more. The event will also include an Exhibit Floor where you will have the opportunity to meet with key industry suppliers as they showcase exiting new products and services. Our intimate setting allows you full access to speakers and exhibitors. We expect approximately 100-125 Chemical Engineers in attendance from companies and academic institutions across the Bay Area. We hope you will join us!Invited SpeakersDr. Matthew Croughan, Keck Graduate Institute (Keynote Speaker) – ‘ Therapeutic Proteins, Specialty Chemicals, and Biofuels: The Past, Present, and Future of Biofactories’Dr. Jens Vogel, Bayer Healthcare LLC – ‘ Targeted Innovation in Bioprocessing’Dr. Alan Fuchs, University of Nevada, Reno – ‘ Multifunctional Materials for Cancer Therapy’Jeff Tarter, Integrated Engineering Services – ‘ California Code Regulations for Biofactories’Franklin Lu, Genentech, Inc. – ‘ Dynamic Feeding via Automated Sampling for High Productivity Cell Culture Process’Dr. Milan Tomic, XOMA – ‘ Drug Development and Biodefense’Exhibitors Include* Coker Pump & Equipment Company * Optimal Biotech Group, LLC* Pall Life Sciences * Avantor Performance Materials* Life Technologies * Purolator - PecoFacet* Alfa Laval * EMD Millipore* Commissioning Agents, Inc * Bug LabUC Berkeley ExtensionAdmissionAIChE Members $65Non-Members $75Students and Retired $50Vendor Tables $250
