Frontiers in Materials Manufacturing: Let’s Put Science to Work

Frontiers in Materials Manufacturing Webinar Series

Frontiers in Materials Manufacturing is an Argonne National Laboratory web series that brings industry and science leaders together to engage about the future of materials and manufacturing science and technology.

Argonne will launch its web series providing a unique forum to focus on key material challenges and how cutting-edge technology will drive materials manufacturing advances.

Scientific understanding is the fast track to impact. Join a one-of-a-kind virtual conversation with industry and science leaders about the use of advanced characterization, data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) in transforming next-generation materials manufacturing science and technology.

Episodes in the Frontiers in Materials Manufacturing webinar series will focus on key materials challenges, such as materials for energy storage and water purification, and the innovations available to meet them. Each webinar also includes a virtual tour of Argonne’s expanded Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF), a one-of-a-kind scale-up R&D facility enabling accelerated materials scale-up and process development through advanced materials synthesis and processing technologies, in situ/operando characterization, and advanced computing.

Manufacturing innovations will play a significant role in solving the global water crisis. How can we use pioneering technologies to deliver next-generation purification materials — selective and resistant to fouling and degradation in energy-intensive applications — that are fundamental to clean water accessibility? Learn from these experts:

  • Frank Cassou, Co-Founder & CEO, Cyclopure
  • Peter Fiske, Executive Director, National Alliance for Water Innovation
  • Alaina Harkness, Executive Director, Current
  • Melissa Klembara, Technology Manager for the RAPID Institute and the Energy-Water Desalination Hub, U.S. Department of Energy
  • Katie Kollhoff, Co-Founder & CEO,  NUMiX Materials
  • Paul Westerhoff, Regents Professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, Arizona State University
  • Jeffrey Wilbur, RO/NF Membrane Chemistry Manager, DuPont Water Solutions

Webinar moderator Junhong Chen, lead water strategist at Argonne, will cap off the webinar with a virtual tour where you can see for yourself the state-of-the art equipment and technologies available to industry partners in the MERF.
