Recently, high oil prices, global warming and climate change due to human reliance on fossil fuels have become world-wide issues. National efforts to develop clean energy are becoming more important than ever in order to contribute to international activity for restoring the environment as well as to reduce the growing national dependence on imported petroleum.
Clean Energy and Chemical Engineering focuses on the development of core technologies and design of catalyst, reactor and process for the production of clean fuels(GTL, MeOH, DME), hydrogen production, CO2 conversion to clean fuels, and fuel cell system as alternative energy sources through catalysis and process technologies.
