Dr. Fateme Rezaei, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering, recently received a $333,680 grant from the National Science Foundation’s Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) to lead research on volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Her co-principal investigator is Dr. Xinhua Liang, associate professor of chemical and biochemical engineering.

Their project is titled “Combined Capture and Reaction in Temperature Swing Adsorption: An Integrated Approach toward VOC Emissions Control.” They are working to develop novel adsorbent materials and processes for abatement of aromatic VOCs from gaseous streams. The grant period is August 1, 2018, to July 31, 2021.
