    WISE NL Speaker Series Announcement - The Green Switch - A Talk about green processing of natural resources, Kelly Hawboldt, PhD, P. Eng., October 17, 2016.

    Dr. Hawboldt is a Chemical Engineer with a particular interest in the sustainable processing and extraction of natural resources, from forestry residues to offshore oil and gas to the food industry. She studies the wastes and residues degenerated in forestry, fisheries, oil and gas, and mining to determine if the upstream process can be modified to minimize waste volumes and toxicity. She then studies extraction and conversion methods to convert these residues into valuable products.

    Her current projects include the conversion of forestry and fishery residues and effluents to bioproducts for use as alternatives for industrial and petrochemicals and biofuels. In her presentation, Dr.

    Hawboldt will outline what we mean by green engineering/processing and applications of this in her research.

    Join us on Monday, October 17th from from 7:00 – 8:30pm at EN2006, Angus Bruneau Engineering Lecture Theatre, S.J. Carew Building. All are welcome and the event is free. For more details and to register, Click HERE for more information.
