Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to chemical engineering.
The catalysis science program explores the efficient use of natural resources, such as light alkanes (methane, ethane, etc.), as precursors of fuels for transportation and commodity chemicals and the upcycling of waste plastics to value-added products.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have found a new way to produce solar fuels by developing completely synthetic bionano machinery to harvest light without the need for a living cell.
