Power Center: LSU on Clean Energy

Jerry Spivey, director of the LSU Center for Atomic Level Catalyst Design aims to develop advanced research tools—especially catalysts—that can more efficiently convert resources into clean energy and higher-value products. The research and discoveries in his lab and at the LSU synchrotron facility, the Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices, or CAMD, could unlock a myriad of opportunities for natural gas.

EPIC Power: LSU on Energy Processes

Under the guidance of Krishnaswamy “Kumar” Nandakumar, the Enabling Process Innovation through Computation (EPIC) consortium connects faculty research and engineering graduate training with the needs of the chemical and energy industries to address challenges in the design of next-generation process plants to be environmentally benign, energy efficient, and meet the workforce development needs of the Louisiana economy.
