Title:Recent Advances in Sustainable Corrosion Inhibitors: Design, Performance, and Industrial Scale Applications

Abstract:The deterioration of metallic substrates because of corrosion is a serious challenge to the oil and gas, desalination, automotive, and chemical industries, as well as to cooling water systems. The most common, practical and cost-effective means of controlling this scourge is the use of corrosion inhibitors. While the use of toxic organic and inorganic chemicals as corrosion inhibitors has been limited by many environmental regulators because of their threat to both human beings and the environment. These toxic effects have led to the use of anticorrosion materials that are eco-friendly and harmless. In recent decades, an increasing number of studies have focused on environmentally friendly and sustainable corrosion inhibitors, which are promising alternatives to toxic corrosion inhibitors, in order to control corrosion damage in diverse corrosive environments. These materials range from plant extracts to amino acids, ionic liquids, drug, C-dots, and natural/carbohydrate polymers. The improvements in modern corrosion inhibition using eco-friendly corrosion inhibitors can substantially affect the evaluation and analyzing ability of scientists and researchers, and can deliver exciting developments to corrosion sciences. The objective of this talk is to introduce the wide scope of sustainable corrosion inhibitors with their state-of-art in the present global market.

Title:Life cycle assessment for green and low-carbon development of energy systems

Abstract:While serving as a material basis for the development of human society, the conversion and utilization of energy has lots of impacts on the ecosphere. In this talk, I will share my thoughts on understanding these impacts from the perspectives of coupled human-environment systems and life-cycle thinking and highlight the importance of assessing energy conversion and utilization technologies, in terms of the depletion of natural resources and emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases, to the green and low-carbon development of energy systems. Few examples on corn stover-derived bioethanol production, carbon dioxide mineralisation and utilization via industrial solid waste, and provincial-level electricity production will be provided to illustrate this importance.
